NEW YORK PAST PARTNERS
Every year, Project by Project selects a non-profit partner based on a theme or issue that addresses current needs in the Asian American community. Check out these amazing organizations that PbP-NY partnered up with and the themes we have focused on!
2017-PbP’s 20 Year Anniversary
"As we celebrate Project by Project’s 20th Anniversary, we hope to reconnect with and invite all of our past beneficiary partners to join with us once again to advance awareness of important social issues in the New York API community." “Project LEAD was conceived from the intersection of a set of unique circumstances inherent to 2017. The first is that this is PbP's 20th anniversary. In anniversary years, we step back and consider the many issues that afflict various segments of the AAPI community rather than going deep with one specific issue. We also reflect on the role PbP should play within the community. The second was the political turmoil that has only grown as the year progresses.”
