I'm excited to share that NextDayBetter will launch our #WhyWeCount storytelling series (phase one) soon to empower the #PuertoRican and #Filipino diasporas to participate in the upcoming #Census2020.

Puerto Ricans and Filipinos are cousins in colonialism. Why not build a coalition and collaborate?

If you’re in #NYC, join us and our community partners at Project Refuge x Collective Action for Puerto Rico this Sunday 12:00pm in Middle Collegiate Church. Our Head of Partnerships, Jorge Fontanez and guest speakers will share #whywecount and why the Census matters to hard-to-count diaspora communities.

If you or your community organization is interested in sharing stories or participating in our nationwide census2020 efforts, please contact us at [email protected]

AARP AAPI Community

For #Stonewall50 and #PrideMonth, NextDayBetter collaborated with AARP to tell an inclusive story of the LGBT movement since the 1800s. Why? Because we need to honor the diverse leaders who have pushed the LGBT movement forward. They are immigrants, black, Latinx, Asian American, indigenous peoples, refugees, and more. We need to tell their story.

This is a work of love - so please share and celebrate those who have sacrificed and fought for equal rights. #LoveisLove #Pride

Thank you to Human Rights Campaign, AARP AAPI Community, Stonewall Community Foundation, VideoOut, National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance, LGBTQ Victory Fund, and more.

In honor of LGBT History Month, we present "A #LivingHistory of the LGBT Movement" powered by AARP - a storytelling series honoring milestones and heroes of the LGBT movement since the 1800s.

2020 census could undercount 4 million people — particularly Latinos and blacks

A new report says the census could undercount more than 4 million people, particularly in Latino and African American communities. How might we ensure that one of the fastest growing ethnic minority groups in the US - the LatinX community is fully counted on the 2020 census? #immigration #WhyWeCount #CensusCounts

This week, we went to Shelby, Montana, to learn about the experience of Filipino educators who are recruited to fill the teacher shortage across rural America towns. We asked Superintendent Crump, "In this political climate, many immigrants and brown people are scared to go to small, middle America towns. Is it a conundrum that Filipino immigrants are being recruited to educate the next generation of Americans?"

Asian Parents & Their LGBT Children: On Unconditional Love

This unconditional love story between Asian parents and their LGBT children is about creating loving families and stronger communities.

There are an estimated 325,000 Asian Pacific Islander (API) adults in the United States that identify as LGBT. Unfortunately, in the API community, young people often see coming out as an act of shaming and dishonoring their parents and their ancestors, but staying in the closet takes a greater toll, causing isolation, depression, and even suicide. Our call to action? Let’s encourage API parents to offer their LGBTQ child a lifeline, support their coming out, and keep the family strong and unified. For more information and resources: http://www.pflagnyc.org/api (API Rainbow Parents of PFLAG NYC)

NextDayBetter x AARP, a storytelling campaign capturing Asian American Pacific Islander love stories on unconditional love. Love is sacrifice. Love is family. Love is love. How you do love unconditionally? Tell us your love story in the comment below, using hashtag: #AAPILoveUnconditionally

At AARP, we want to help Asian American and Pacific Islander Families Get More Out Of Life
