Emerging Threats to the AAPI Community: A Civil Rights and Immigration Discussion

As we celebrate the successes our community has achieved during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, let us also take note of those threats that are affecting our community. Join us for two insightful panel discussions on civil rights and immigration. Refreshments will also be served.

Based in Washington, D.C., the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans is a coalition of 34 national Asian Pacific American organizations that serves to represent the interests of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities and to provide a national voice for our communities’ concerns. Our communities are the fastest growing racial/ethnic group in the United States, currently making up approximately six percent of the population.
