Ellie Tsuchiya is currently a Community Organizer with the Georgia chapter of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF). In this role, she works directly with AAPI women and nonbinary folks in Georgia to build power at the grassroots level and advocate for policy and structural change around Reproductive Justice, Economic Justice, and Immigrant Rights. Ellie is also a strong arts advocate and has experience digitally organizing using arts and cultural strategies through a virtual community art project called MEND. In her previous role, she worked in regional economic development and was tapped to work on a collective impact initiative around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Ellie has a B.S. in Economics from Georgia Tech and a Certificate in Creative Placemaking from the New England College.
“Generosity is opening up your heart to those around you.”
The National Asian Pacific American Women’â€™s Forum works to build a movement for social, political, and structural change for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and girls. I will be focusing on standing up a local economic justice campaign in Georgia.
