I wanted to update you all on what we've been doing behind-the-scenes here at DeclarASIAN for the past few months. We've got a little project coming up this summer, which if you've looked through our website, you would have noticed the new "Arts Initiative" page. The details for that are still being finalized, but I hope to reveal and open it up soon!
Here's the exciting news: We're officially registered as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit now!
After weeks of research during quarantine, I filed some paperwork, wrote some letters, typed some bylaws, and drank a lot of coffee. When Claire and I first launched DeclarASIAN, we envisioned it as a platform to give all Asians and Asian American voices a chance to be heard and to empower young activists. We were just two rising high-school students who wanted to help even just a few others find their voices in this changing world. Never did we think that we'd make it here, and we're so grateful to everyone who has constantly supported us since our launch in 2017.
That's all for today, but stay posted to learn about our upcoming Arts Initiative and ways that you can get involved!
See you soon,
Co-Founder of DeclarASIAN
