About Us

BAPA was founded in 1994 and works to spread awareness about the local Boulder Asian & Pacific Islander Cultures. We have been represented by different ethnic backgrounds such as Hmong, Japanese, Chinese, Laotian, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Korean, Filipino, Malaysian, Indian, Thai, Tibetan, and Nepalese cultures. 
We invite any and all individuals from the vast region of Asia and the Pacific Islands, as well as those who have an interest in these cultures, to become active members of our alliance.
