Poverty is an increasingly significant issue within Philadelphia’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Between 2007 and 2001, the poverty rate among the AAIP community grew by over 40% to 41,000. Yet, less than one percent of funding from private sector sources has been directed toward this community.
During this session we will examine the current funding landscape within the regional Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and explore how to make sure these communities have adequate resources to grow their capacity and long-term sustainability. We will call on institutions and individuals to engage the voices of impacted communities, and to leverage individual action for collective good.
This session will open with a snapshot of the AAPI population in our region and will include a moderated discussion on the community response to issues affected the AAPI community. We will then hear from AAPIP about their First Step Campaign, which is designed to drive and sustain an increase in grantmaking to AAPI communities across the nation, followed by a discussion with regional funders about partnerships they have built within the AAPI community. Finally, attendees will participate in a series of targeted breakout discussions on the topics of Health, Human Services, Education and Economic Development.
