ASIA Community Calendar

A Night in Macau

The Tangier 507 S Cleveland Massillon Rd, Fairlawn, OH, United States

Join us for ASIA’s 2024 Fundraiser at The Tangier on Friday, March 1 for a spring celebration and putting the FUN in fundraising. When you register for A Night in Macau, you receive admission for the casino night experience at The Tangier, dinner, and a drink ticket. Support our mission and services when you enjoy…




The event proceeds will go towards ASIA’s critical programs and services that provide assistance to New Americans. The Gala raises funds for the many programs that provide training and technical support to the startup entrepreneurs in the immigrant and refugee communities. Come listen to engaging stories, participate in cultural activities, and, through your generosity, enable ASIA to expand its capacity to promote and support immigrant and refugee entrepreneurship that will, in turn, create jobs, revitalize and stabilize communities, and spark greater economic activity.



Global Café

Global Café is a guest speaker series for members of the immigrant and refugee communities to share their unique stories and perspectives with a broad audience. Each session takes place on the fourth Thursday of every month from spring to autumn, either virtually or in person, and audience interaction is encouraged. Join us in learning about the different experiences and points of view of our neighbors from across the globe.  


Ohio AAPI Legislative Day

Every spring, ASIA hosts AAPI Advocacy Day in Columbus, OH for advocacy, civic engagement, and education among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Multiple organizations from across Ohio partner with us to meet with elected officials and raise awareness of AAPI voters’ concerns. Senior citizens, students, activists, and community organizers come together to support legislation that expands health and socioeconomic equity as well as inclusivity in Ohio. Activities include legislator visits, guest speakers, and free lunch. Transportation from Akron or Cleveland to Columbus is provided. 



We feel very strongly that it is important to bring women and women’s voices into AAPI groups and to the Statehouse.
