The National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA), East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU), National APIA Panhellenic Association (NAPA), and OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates invite you to submit original artwork for the Friends DO Make A Difference Campaign. The intent of the campaign is to raise awareness around bullying issues among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. We encourage you to create a poster that incorporates your experience and understanding about bullying and anti-bullying. If selected, the poster will become the face of the 2015 Friends DO Make A Difference Campaign.
We firmly believe in the healing power of art. It helps us tell our stories, express our pain and share our hopes. Your poster can reflect any of these perspectives. When you submit your artwork please write a brief statement about what your poster means to you. If selected it will be made into posters and shared with college campuses and communities throughout the country.
