WHO WE ARE
ElevAsian is a collective of AAPIs in the Greater Milwaukee area who strive to elevate the visibility of people, business and issues in the AAPI community. We do this by celebrating the successes and shining a light on the challenges facing our AAPI community. We build bridges of understanding by sharing information, experiences, and stories that bring us together.
WHAT WE DO

VISIBILITY OF OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS
We come together to celebrate our community and expand our networks through social events and curated experiences.
VISIBILITY OF ASIAN BUSINESSES
We promote Asian Restaurant Week every year during AAPI Heritage Month to highlight and support Asian owned businesses in our community.
