COVID-19 has significantly impacted our organization and the community we serve in big and small ways. We have had to quickly shift our focus to develop a response that is comprehensive and addresses the elements that we must undertake to help our community get through this pandemic. We seek to illustrate this so that donors and funders can be motivated to support our work.
Harnessing our collective power by connecting, learning and acting together to improve the lives of community.
Our primary areas of work are:
*Network Weaving - We build and deepen relationships among a broad cross -section of Asian Minnesotans, host events that help our leaders build social capital, and provide opportunities for leaders to learn about issues that impact the community.
*Advancing the Community's Priorities of Education, Economics, and Immigration - We carry out activities that inform and influence policy decisions that impact Asian Minnesotans; engage and mobilize the community to speak for themselves; illuminate research that lifts up practices and opportunities to meet the needs of those most impacted by inequities; and advocate for increased investments to the community.
*Leadership Support - We equip and invest in leaders to help them be more effective social justice leaders.
*Building Partnerships and Alliances - We build alliances with individual leaders and organizations in multicultural and multiracial formations to create achieve inclusion, fairness, and equity.
