Understanding the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Communities in Orange County
Wednesday, May 5, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join Orange County Grantmakers, Asian Pacific Community Fund, National Asian American Community Foundation, and Orange County Community Foundation for a conversation around the history, community, and experiences of the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities in Orange County.
Attendees will hear from Dr. Linda Trinh Vo, Professor and former chair of the Department of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Irvine, and Charlene Kazner, Board Secretary for Pacific Islander Health Partnership, on an overview of the AANHPI communities, the historical legacy of how and why the communities established themselves in Orange County, and how these historical legacies connect to the needs and experiences of the population today.
This is the first of a series of workshops focused on the AANHPI community. Future sessions will dive into individual needs, gaps, and the role these communities are playing in moving racial justice and systems change forward in Orange County.
These sessions are open to funders only. Attendees do not need to be a member of OCG to attend.
