In-Person Event

AAPI Caregiver Appreciation Day

About the Event

As we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month this May, it’s time to shine a spotlight on the often overlooked but crucial role of AAPI caregivers. Co-hosted by Committee of 100, University Settlement, and Empowerment of American Asians, AAPI Caregiver Appreciation Day is a heartfelt tribute to those who exemplify compassion, resilience, and selflessness in their daily lives as caregivers for family members and loved ones.

This event serves as a platform for knowledge exchange and community support, bringing together representatives from various sectors. As part of the event, Committee of 100 will present recently announced AAPI Hate Tracker” (co-developed with TAAF) to help in the reporting of hate incidents in the New York area. Attendees will gain access to a wealth of resources and support networks, fostering a sense of solidarity and empowerment. In addition to informative sessions, attendees can look forward to traditional dance performances, giveaways, light meals, and raffle prizes.

To ensure an intimate and engaging experience, only 200 free tickets will be available for this highly anticipated event. Ticket distribution will start on Tuesday, May 21 at 11 AM at the Houston Street Center (273 Bowery, New York, NY 10002). Each person may receive up to two tickets, distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Please note, this event and the AAPI Hate Tracker presentation will be conducted in Chinese.

 

長久以來,亞太裔社區以其重視家庭、傳統孝道的文化而聞名。大多数亞太裔一生都兼顧著家庭照顧者的角色,在日常生活和工作中都展現出同情心、韌性和無私。然而,亞太裔照顧者往往未得到應有的支持與認可。尤其是在新冠大流行之後,他們面臨著更多的挑戰和困境,包括社會和種族偏見以及心理壓力等。 

為此,在五月亞太裔傳統月之際,大學睦鄰之家百人會美亞共同促進會聯合舉辦亞太裔照顧者感謝日活動,旨在認可亞太裔照顧者的價值,提供必要的社區資源、實用的幫助和支持。
