Our goals are to help frame the narrative around the positives, pave a path forward to conversation and connection, and create camaraderie and community among local Asian Americans and allies.
“Facts feed the mind, stories feed the soul. Who we listen to and connect with speaks volumes about what matters most in our lives.”
“Our stories are rich and complex. They are relevant and significant — yesterday, today, and tomorrow.”
“Sharing diverse stories, for me, means closing the gap so that all of our shared humanity is on display in a way that creates more empathy, love and connection.”
PAVE NC (Pan Asian Voices and Experiences of North Carolina) is a nonpartisan, volunteer-led initiative created to educate by sharing real stories and experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in N.C. and provide a platform to connect AAPI communities so that they may collaborate with and support each other.
