Honor

Every year NQAPIA honors groups and leaders who have improved the lives of LGBTQ APIs.

Honorees

This year, we will honor two Community Catalyst Awardees:

  • Vanita Gupta, Former head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and current President & CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
  • Hyacinth Alvaran, Former Senior Diversity & Inclusion Program Manager at the Human Rights Campaign and current Solutions Consultant at Cook Ross

Access

Please be advised: this event is on the third floor, and the elevator is broken. It likely will not be fixed before the dinner, so attendees must walk up stairs. We sincerely apologize and are deeply troubled by the inaccessibly of the venue for all of our community members. We tried to move the dinner to another location, but no other place (that is near a metro) could accommodate a dinner of our size and at our price point–we looked at 27 other venues!

We are disappointed in this situation and ourselves for being a group that advocates for inclusion, yet we are being exclusive. But, after much discussion and both internal and external dialogue, including members and allies of the disability rights community, we had no other choice but to move forward with the space and find another accessible venue for next year. We know it is far from ideal and we want to be as transparent, honest, and open to accountable as possible.

Attend

The evening will include cocktails, a 10-course Chinese banquet dinner and dancing.
