The Banyan Tree Project
San Francisco, CA

The Banyan Tree Project is an initiative underwritten by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to raise awareness on a national level on the topic of HIV/AIDS in the Asian & Pacific Islander (A&PI) communities. 

Led by A&PI Wellness Center of San Francisco, five major urban cities participated in the project in its inaugural year:  Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington DC.

The goal is to reach A&PI families to raise awareness and promote the message of anti-discrimination against those living with or at risk with HIV/AIDS.


The Hom Team developed many of the campaign strategy and components to launch the historic First A&PI National HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on May 19th, including:

  • Developing and producing two Public Service Announcements (PSAs)
    for television.
  • Gaining local and national distribution of the PSAs with broadcasters, national cable networks, and on the direct-to-the home platforms--over 80 million TV house holds.
  • Website design and development for client self-maintenance
  • Branding--developed logo, tagline and campaign identity...see more
  • Collateral materials.
  • Media and public relations for participating cities.
  • Event coordination and securing A&PI talent.
  • Overall project management.
