After years of anti-Asian hate, coalition kicks off AAPI Heritage Month with action plan for future

NEW YORK CITY, NY (TIP): After years of nonstop anti-Asian hate, the AAPI Equity Budget Coalition, a coalition of over 50 AAPI community leaders and organizations, kicked off AAPI Heritage Month by celebrating the historic $20 million investment in AAPI communities in the Fiscal Year 2022-23 state budget. This allocation represents a significant improvement over last year’s first-ever allocation by doubling the state’s investment in AAPI communities. The coalition gathered on April 28 to celebrate this marked progress, and to renew its call for a sustained fair and equitable funding stream for AAPI communities throughout the state.
