Invisible & Essential: An exploration of the economic impacts of COVID-19 and xenophobia on low-income AAPI communities | National CAPACD

May 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Register: Coming Soon | Contact: nahida@nationalcapacd.org

The rise in hate-based violence against Asian Americans since the onset of the pandemic has brought to public attention the longstanding dehumanization of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the U.S., which has forced many to live in fear and work in insecurity both historically and in this current moment.

Join National CAPACD for our Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) summit, where we will explore the impact of COVID-19 and racism on low-income Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and neighborhoods across the country. We will share original research and data, hear from leaders in AAPI community-based organizations (CBOs) about their work to address low-income communities in economic crisis, and explore policy solutions that will advance equitable recovery and provide all communities with opportunities to thrive. Summit participants will be invited to engage in a series of breakout sessions that consider strategies to foster economic opportunity and neighborhood stabilization.
