Did you know?

Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is celebrated in May because it recognizes the first Japanese immigrants to come to the United States on May 7th, 1843 and the major contributions of Chinese immigrant laborers to the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10th, 1869.
Screenings on the Steps.png

Cozy up and grab the popcorn.  Join W Nashville and API Middle Tennessee on the Spanish Steps for an outdoor movie viewing of iconic films that celebrate API voices and stories.  Setup in amphitheater style with an oversized screen at the front, there are no bad seats in the house!  Bar service available for purchase.  Specialty cocktails will be served all month and a portion of proceeds will give back to API Middle Tennessee!


Schedule for May

Did you know that Asian and Pacific Islander nonprofit organizations like API Middle Tennessee receive less than 0.2% of foundation funding.  This has not changed in three decades.  We’re participating in #GIVEINMAY, a national giving campaign to raise support for API organizations.  We have a $2,500 fundraising goal, and thanks to supporters like you, we believe this is possible!  Will you help us?
