Asian American Coalition of Chicago stands as one of the longest-standing organizations that bring Asian Americans together in the city. They are also known for their annual Lunar New Year celebrations.
WHIAANHPI under the new administration carries the missions to create a comprehensive response and serve the AA and NHPI community against injustices—from the rise of anti-Asian hate and systemic lack of disaggregated data to various economic disparities like education, health, and housing.
It’s rare to stumble upon a virtual occasion with this caliber, a conference cultivated to help participants from all backgrounds better understand the AAPI community in as many fields and perspectives as possible. Don't miss this chance and register now!
If there’s anything that people can learn from entrepreneurs like Chicken & Rice Guys Founder Ian So, it is to just build the things that don’t exist yet especially if they’ll serve a meaningful purpose. Being unable to find a safe and brave space online where AAPIs can connect, Ian therefore founded Node.
