Excerpt from the article:
“Since 2016, OPAWL: Building AAPI Feminist Leadership has been providing a vital communal space for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and nonbinary people in Ohio.
The organization’s first event was held in a founding member’s living room in Columbus and has since spread to Cleveland, Cincinnati and all over Ohio. To help them achieve their mission of organizing for social justice and elevating the voices, visibility, and progressive leadership of their members, OPAWL has created caucuses ranging from a multigenerational to a Filipinx group.
Now the organization has become has become even more inclusive with the addition of an LGBTQ+ caucus. The caucus’s first event — which took place on April 14 at Wild Goose Creative in Columbus — was an open mic night full of storytelling and performances, including poetry reading and karaoke.”
