In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, VAYLA launched many of our initiatives. Read ahead to find out what they were and how to stay involved!
We MUST show up for our Black and Brown brothers and sisters.

If we do nothing we are complicit. We must take time to reflect on how we can support and step up, share responsibility, and build our communities and leaders with unlearning, healing, intersectionality, allyship, and radical love.

What kind of stories have you been told about the Black and Brown communities as an AAPI? What conversations are you holding space for in your own families and community today?

Save the Date! Donations will help us emerge from this pandemic even stronger to continue providing the programs and advocacy our community needs.

Donating to VAYLA means providing fresh produce to Families in New Orleans East who have been unable to receive government aid, resources, and other needs during this global pandemic.

Please consider donating to our Emergency Relief Fund and/or sharing it with your networks so we may support any undocumented or non-citizen folks in need.

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

The celebration of our histories continues each and every day through our lived experiences. We honor our shared histories, our ancestors, and ourselves by empowering our communities through education, sharing our stories, and paving new pathways for one another.
