We seek peace, equality, and a society free of racism, stereotypes, and intolerance.
In direct response to the increasing violence, racism, and hate crimes towards members of the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community nationally and in North Carolina, faculty and staff from institutions across the UNC System have come together to form the new Asian and Pacific Islander Caucus (APIC).
Awareness of the current API community situation, using facts, data, and personal stories to raise understanding.
Education about API history and culture, to reduce bias, and misunderstanding about members of our community.
Promotion and Advocacy around fair treatment and to stand together against violence and xenophobia.
Supporting one another through our shared experiences and building a learning community around API issues.
