32 Community Based Organizations Release Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Neighborhood Recovery PlanAsian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) neighborhoods have experienced the economic devastation of COVID-19 since long before the shelter-in-place began.
32 AAPI community based organizations have united to release the following plan to call on New York City and State government officials to prioritize AAPI neighborhoods in recovery efforts.
Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Neighborhood Recovery PlanWe are a group of community based organizations representing the diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community of New York City and partnering together to develop a plan to ensure the long-term recovery of the individuals, families, small businesses, and institutions of our neighborhoods.
The AAPI community is the fastest growing racial group in New York, making up 15% of the City and 10% of the State.
We remind New Yorkers that this is a public health issue, not a racial, ethnic, or immigrant issue.
