About the Event

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) have long faced challenges to achieving belonging, safety, and equity in the US, but the intensification of anti-Asian sentiment in the US in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic calls for greater attention to this issue. As the nation reckons with systemic racism, a new window has opened to understand and meet the diverse needs of AAPI communities through federal policy.

To mark the launch of The Asian American Foundation (TAAF) and build on new Urban Institute research sponsored by TAAF on AAPI organizations, please join the Urban Institute and TAAF for the next installment in Urban’s conversation series, Evidence to Action. Urban President Sarah Wartell will moderate a panel discussion about strategies for targeting federal programs to meet the needs of AAPI communities and increasing AAPI visibility in federal data.
