Taiwanese American Professionals (TAP) - Boston stands in solidarity with the Black communities of America. We are heartbroken by the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more. We recognize that racism, discrimination and police brutality are serious problems in the United States. Like thousands of our fellow countrymen who are exercising their First Amendment rights to peaceful protests on the streets all across the nation, we are angry that these problems continue to plague our nation.

TAP-Boston is driven by the ideals of continuous self-improvement and the moral obligation to help others. The current events across the country serve as a reminder of the need for proactive and just leaders. To drive change, we must take action and get involved.

This is our calling to be more involved in our local communities.

Go vote, be educated, listen, have discussions, get the full story, run for office, be kind, be the change.

Be the change.

TAP-Boston will be matching up to $400 in individual donations split evenly to support the following organizations*:
