NCLF is a 9-day conference from Sept. 12th to Sept. 20th, packed with powerful keynote speakers, workshops, an exhibition hall, and more. The theme of this conference is “AAPI Unity: The Power of WE”. Topics cover intersectional experiences within the AAPI community, ranging from a discussion on how to stop racism as a social pandemic to combating Islamophobia and discussions on cross-generational AAPI women leadership. This forum is intended for AAPI to build and strengthen our community: we invite all AAPI individuals and non-AAPI allies, AAPI and non-AAPI organizations building allyship, corporations who sponsor and support AAPI communities, and policymakers, elected, and appointed officials who represent AAPI communities.
If all that doesn’t excite you, this virtual forum will allow you to see performers, renowned chefs, and exercises to delight your senses, body, and mind.
Above all, this virtual forum provides a platform for AAPI communities and allies to network, collaborate, and build trust and solidarity. Collectively, WE are empowered to build our American dream together.
This event is sponsored by Asian American Unity Coalition (AAUC), Civic Leadership USA (CLUSA) and 2020 NCLF.
