A/P/A BRIDGE was created by Asian/Pacific American (A/PA) student leaders through the A/P/A Institute at NYU to cultivate “Asian/Pacific American” as a political identity, by doing the following:

- Creating a space for fostering open dialogue and activism around issues of race and racism, culture, and identity

- Exploring the diversity and complexity of Asian/Pacific America in relation to other social identities (e.g., ability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, religion/spirituality, sexuality, class)

- Educating and empowering individuals to inspire social change

- Building A/PA leaders to bridge communities within NYU and beyond.
