Movement Convergences

NQAPIA is coming to your city to ask you: where are we now, and where will we go? Let’s identify the threats we’re up against and build our QTAPI political home!

Movement Convergences

Program

Each Movement Convergence is an opportunity for us to learn, share, and grow with one another between our local and national LGBTQ API community. We’ll share our values with one another, and you’ll teach us the threats in your area. How do we organize with these two things in mind, and how can NQAPIA as a national organization support you locally? Together, we will build power and build our QTAPI political home!
