AAPI Safety & Belonging

The Asian American Foundation has designated Daya as a TAAF City Partner to address hate incidents in Houston’s AAPI community. This program provides safety services, community programing, and interagency collaborations. Alongside our other city partners, BPSOS Houston and Tahirih Justice Center, Houston Chapter, this initiative offers you, our community, opportunities to learn about collective safety, take action as a bystander, build supportive networks, and explore the AAPI perspective on public safety issues in our diverse city.
