residents from Chandler, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Mesa,
Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe gathered at Tempe
Town Lake to celebrate the annual Regional Unity
Walk. This event is hosted by the City of Tempe Office
of Diversity & Strategic Management and the Human
Relations Commission.
This year: The concept of unity and embracing
diversity has never been more crucial and it’s a
concept that should engage all generations. For this
reason, The City of Tempe is seeking to increase
youth participation in the Unity Walk.

The time for AAPI girls and gender-expansive to tell their stories is long overdue. Help us in this crucial work by sharing the survey with AAPI girls and gender-expansive youth in your community. 

@girlsleadership, along with research firm Evaluation Studio and the AAPI Youth Research Council, are embarking on a national study to change this and learn how ethnicity and culture impact the leadership development of AAPI girls. 

Why is this important? Due to the model minority myth, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are often unseen and unheard. But they’re the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., accounting for 7.7% of the nation’s total population at 24 million in 2020 — nearly double that of 2000’s AAPI population of 12.7 million. While there is data on the general AAPI population, no research exists on AAPI girls.

Help us get this important information. Survey closes December 23! Participants will automatically be entered to win a $50 Visa Gift Card (20 total). 

When you fill out the survey please note our organization’s name in the “How did you hear about this survey?” question.
