working towards racial justice by building API community, lifting API voices, and celebrating API identities


API Middle Tennessee emerged out of community conversations that started in 2019. The organization was officially incorporated as a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2020.

What is API?

Asian and Pacific Islanders

We recognize that there are different terms -- none of them perfect -- that are used to encompass the multitude of Asian and Pacific Islander identities.  While not everyone may identify using this term, when we use API, we refer to people with ties to the geographic regions of East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia (the Indian Subcontinent), and the Pacific Islands.

committed to transparency

As a 501(c)(3), we are accountable to the community we serve.  We are always happy to answer any questions about our budget and operations.
