WAVES – Wellness. Advocacy. Voices. Education. Support.
Past Events Showcase
In 2021, over 1,300 people attended five webinars we organized, and over 840 people located in all 50 states watched the recordings of the webinars. The recordings can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
Amidst a rise of anti-Asian hate during the pandemic, we organized educational webinars, including a Self-Defense and Empowerment training and an Op-Ed writing workshop titled “Silent No More: We Rise Up and Write Up.” We supported the “One Book One World” book donation drive to Chicago public schools to promote awareness about Asian American history and narratives among children at an early age. The Youth Mental Health webinars conducted in 2020 drew over 3,000 participants from 40-plus states, and close to 90% were parents.
Since 2016, WAVES has served thousands of community members in the U.S. and abroad through “Asian Parents American Children,” a free, open series of mental health educational seminars. Youth Mental Health education sessions were offered at the 2016 and 2018 Chinese American Conventions.
