Policy and Advocacy

Telling Our Stories, Building a Powerful Voice

National CAPACD aims to “tell our stories” by forging an AAPI community action research and policy agenda around the housing, community and economic development needs of low-income AAPIs.  We engage in policy advocacy and promote participatory action research to increase the influence of AAPI communities nationally to obtain equal access and equitable resources.
Working with our broad base of member organizations, as well as with institutions whose efforts have traditionally not included AAPIs, National CAPACD facilitates partnerships with academic institutions in order to produce more applied research about our communities and advocates for policy and legislation to address the housing and economic development needs of low-income AAPIs.
