Stories of Impact from Our Coalition

In 2021, Asian American Pacific Policy & Planning Council (A3PCON) embodied our new identity, AAPI Equity Alliance, capturing our mission and the strength and impact of our members. The advancements we’ve made thus far for racial equity, health equity and civic engagement for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are possible thanks to our supporters and partners.

AAPI Equity Alliance is proud to share our 2021 – 2023 Community Impact Report: Power in Community showcasing the stories of impact from our coalition of over 40 member organizations and partners!
