When you purchase an item at our store, you’re helping NAAAP-Chicago further its reach and support of the Chicago AAPI Community.
Each year, 50+ of our volunteers, many leading professionals in their respective fields, take the time to mentor, pack food or school supplies, network, and organize events to build up the AAPI Community. As the 3rd oldest NAAAP chapter in the nation, we boast an active membership of 200 strong + counting. Your dollars spent in this store have a direct impact in:
- Soliciting speakers for our leadership development panels
- Creating engaging programs for AAPI professional development + networking
- Building awareness of local AAPI issues like increasing voter registrations or micro-aggressions to burnouts in the office
- Creating funds to purchase school supplies or toys for underserved neighborhoods of primarily AAPI groups
Every quarter, our NAAAP Chicago store opens with new merchandise showcasing local Chicago artisan work, seasonal pieces, and fan favorites—all printed locally here in Chicago! We are happy to connect with and work with local AAPI artists if they’d like to showcase a piece on our swag. Email Sarah with your questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
