Self-Care/Mental Health Resources for BIPOC


LGBTQIA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual people, with the intent of the + to indicate inclusivity to any other sexual orientation or gender identity minorities that are unintentionally not included in the community acronym. 

Spaces to be in Community with Other APIDA/AMEMSA Health Sciences Professionals

APIDA stands for Asian Pacific Islander & Desi American while AMEMSA stands for Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian. Both are political identities that attempt to build identity around shared experiences of racism in the United States. While the term Asian American was coined as a political identity during the Third World Liberation Front in 1968, it has evolved into a term that means East Asian Americans rather than all. Furthermore, this also may exclude Middle Eastern Americans. While this debate is ongoing, resources for both APIDA and AMEMSA folks are pooled together in this section to be as inclusive as possible.
