API Summit 2023 Recap: AAPIs In the Racial Justice Movement

This year’s API Summit was a transformative day for the Asian Pacific Fund and our Bay Area Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Through conversations, connections, and hugs, we brought together leaders and activists to reflect on AAPIs in the racial justice movement and build forward. Thank you to our speakers for shifting our mindsets, our sponsors for creating the space for us to have these important conversations, and to all attendees who responded to the call for the community to build forward together.
