Supporting the Asian and Pacific Islander Community
This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we’re celebrating the diversity and impact of Asians and Pacific Islanders (API) while also raising awareness of issues the community has faced for decades. This month and beyond, we’re amplifying API voices, celebrating the vibrancy and impact of the community, and sharing new ways we’re providing support.
How Facebook Is Supporting the API Community
Last year, we invested $10 million in racial justice grants, and today we’re expanding this investment with an additional $5 million donation that will go to organizations focused on racial justice and equity for the Asian and Pacific Islander community and other marginalized communities.
How You Can Celebrate and Support
Share your support : We’re adding new ways to express yourself and share your support across our apps including new stickers and avatar expressions on Facebook and new AR/VR filters and stickers on Instagram designed in collaboration with artist Dingding Hu. On Messenger you can check out a new set of camera stickers to share with your friends and on WhatsApp you can share stickers designed by illustrator Gracia Lam that highlight the strength of women from Asia and the Pacific Islands.
