The Asian Americans with Disabilities Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in the spirit of intersectionality, creating space to explore the ways in which disability and Asian American identity interact.

Our mission is to provide the next generation of disabled Asian American leaders with accessible resources so that they can combat anti-Asian racism and ableism in their own communities.
