The OC API Taskforce and the Ecosystem of the AANHPI Nonprofit Sector

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a unique and first of its kind collaboration developed – the OC API Taskforce, 9 separate agencies representing Asian American and Pacific Islander community members working together and in alignment with one another to ensure equitable access to testing and resources. Now, almost a year and a half in to the pandemic, we invite funders to join for a deep dive conversation into the strategies and lessons that made this taskforce so successful. Please join Ellen Ahn, Korean Community Services; Ualani Ho’opai, Pacific Islander Health Partnership; Becky Nguyen, Vietnamese American Cancer Foundation; and Vattana Peong, The Cambodian Family; for a candid discussion around why such a collaborative was needed, what type of infrastructure supporting our AANHPI nonprofit sector was built, and what it means for these community serving agencies moving forward.

All funders (you do not need to be an OCG member) as well as government representatives welcome as we discuss next steps and how government and philanthropy can continue to support the important work started by the taskforce.

Who Are We: Understanding the Asian American, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander 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.
