Where are we going next?
The Southern Nevada Asian Pacific Islander Queer Society (SNAPIQS) is NOT a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization or 501(c)(4) nonprofit social welfare organization. However, we are working forward toward obtaining this status in the future!
However, SNAPIQS cannot continue its mission without your help and donation.
SNAPIQS's mission is to serve the LGBT*, queer, gender-nonconforming, and transgender individuals of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American descent in Southern Nevada region through education, mentorship, awareness, advocacy, and activities both social and cultural.
As an all-volunteer, grassroots organization, we have been dedicated to providing a safe space to inspire individuals to be their best selves, for others to celebrate our diversity, and for all of us to continue the fight for equality.
Your donations can help us to purchase supplies, maintain free programmings, help us give back to the community, and more.
SNAPIQS social events are creating space a safe place and a supportive community that encourages growth.
Our work is rooted in the many legacies of queer and trans API people who have fought isolation, battled for our rights, and created communities of care. To understand where we’re going, we need to understand the successes and challenges of our elders and ancestors.
SNAPIQS builds queer and transgender Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American power to amplify our voices and increase the visibility of our communities. Through organizing in the Southern Nevada, we inspire and train grassroots leaders, transform our values from scarcity to abundance, and partner with organizations to sustain a vibrant movement ecosystem.
We speak up loud and clear when we have to, like decrying the latest attacks on our black lives, transgender, and immigrant communities. We mobilize our members to come out and vote, knock door to door, whatever we can to help advocates for our community and influence laws affecting our well-being.
