Give Big to API Chaya:

Where Survivor Leadership is at the Heart of Our Work.
Lourdez came to API Chaya first as a survivor, attending our Healing Arts Support Group to find connection and healing amongst fellow survivors. After an intensive eleven weeks, they were left tender and open, but not ready to be done... so they chose to become a Natural Helper, volunteering so that other survivors would not have to be alone on their journeys. 

RISE Zines

RISE is our group for folks who want long-term connection, beyond support group. These are a few of the zines that arose from survivors like Lourdez taking power in art.

Lourdez, QNP

Today, Lourdez is serving others as API Chaya's Queer Network Program Coordinator. They bring the joy and resilience of survivor leadership to our communities each and every day!

You Are Whole

Even if you've never met Lourdez, you may have seen their artwork. So much of their healing journey comes out in their amazing prints, handed out at API Chaya events!
