AAPI Strong Roundtable

May 7, 2021 - 11:00 AM

Nearly 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents were reported since the onset of the pandemic back in March 2020.  As Asian American communities are experiencing an increase in violence and hate prompted by racist rhetoric about the coronavirus pandemic, we are asking the members of our community to come together to discuss ways to help combat anti-Asian violence.

The CalAsian Chamber, National ACE and the API Legislative Caucus would like to invite you to our upcoming AAPI Strong Roundtable” where we will hear from our policy makers, corporate leaders and members of our AAPI community.
