Asian Women Giving Circle Gives $78,000 in Grants to Nine NYC-Based Artists and Projects

NEW YORK, NY – From President’s Trump’s travel ban and the #MeToo movement to the oral histories of New York City elders who lived through the interment of Japanese Americans and the mass refugee exodus of the Vietnam War are among the projects funded this year by the Asian Women Giving Circle.

“Every year that we make these grants, we’re struck by the bridges between projects that connect our histories as Asian Americans to our present-day struggles,” said AWGC founder Hali Lee. “We’re immensely proud to stand with this year’s grantees, each of who challenge us to write history in our names and fight for a future that is inclusive and just.”
