2019 AAPICRF

Please see highlights from our
4th Annual Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Civil Rights Forum below

We want to thank everyone who joined us for our 4th Annual AAPI Civil Rights forum. Thank you to our forum organizers, Commissioners Nate James Bae Kupel, Vira Douangmany Cage, Nina Liang, Philjay Solar, Bora Chiemruom, Mabel Lam, volunteers, speakers, moderators, and participants who made this forum a lively and successful day!


This year we welcomed over 280 participants who were able to choose from 15 panels to listen to experts speak about critical topics that affect our communities. We were honored to welcome our keynote speakers Co-Dean David Lopez of Rutgers University Natasha Warikoo of Harvard University School of Education, and Asian American Actor Christopher Sean. During lunch, we honored our two Unsung Hero awardees, State Representative Tackey Chan and Dr. Elisa Choi for their dedication and passionate work serving AAPI communities.

Each year, our goal is to bring together Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders from all across the Commonwealth to enjoy a day of learning, networking, and connecting with other AAPI’s who are creating change in their communities and raise awareness of other prominent issues that affect AAPI communities.
