The youth from AYPAL get us started with a participatory opening performance for Day 2 of Building CAPACD!  Austin Le, youth volunteer dance instructor, will lead us all in learning a Vietnamese Fusion dance.  No experience required - just a sense of fun and some props you already have at home!​
The Resilience of AAPI Communities and Neighborhoods: A Multi-generational Perspective

Two decades ago, National CAPACD was founded in Seattle, Washington by AAPI leaders from 16 different community development organizations around the country.  Their intent was three-fold: to create a voice at the national level for AAPI community development issues, to ensure equitable investment in our communities, and to create a space for connecting and sharing amongst our communities.  


In this conversation, original founders of the organization will come together with up-and-coming AAPI leaders to discuss their perspectives on what has worked, our ongoing challenges and how we can and should pivot into the future.
