Resilient Communities is a virtual five-day summit of plenaries, workshops, and entertainment for Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and allies across the country. The summit will consist of advocacy training and issue-based workshops on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted AAPI communities. 

  • Community members will be able to discuss anti-Asian discrimination and hate incidents, civic engagement during a pandemic, impact on small businesses, mental health, and more.
  • Students will have the chance to explore financial literacy, career building, and college readiness this season.
  • Working professionals will be able to hear from mentors and peers on the changes in corporate spaces and building inclusivity.

Workshops are free and open to the public, though RSVP is required.
