COVID-19 made starkly visible the disparities in our society. Nowhere was this more clear than for the Pacific Islander (PI) community in California.
Philanthropy and policymakers are engaged in discussions about what an equitable recovery looks like, which is commendable. But for Pacific Islanders, the data and research that exists to track their recovery is woefully inadequate.
Empowering Pacific Islander Communities, NeighborWorks America, and Advancement Project California's RACE COUNTS initiative are hosting a philanthropic briefing to produce a much-needed report that sheds light on a long-term equitable recovery for California's PI communities.
This event is co-sponsored by Philanthropy California and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy.
