Asian Community Statewide Listening Forum

July 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

In light of COVID-19, ensuring that Asian community members have access to social support services is essential in planning the recovery efforts. In support of the Governor’s Social Support Advisory Group, the Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs (CAPAA) and Asian Pacific Islander Coalition of Washington (APIC) invite you to participate in a Statewide Asian Community Listening Forum to share your community’s experiences, concerns and needs relating to social supports during the COVID-19 pandemic, as Washington State continues to move through this recovery period.

· Geographic areas rural and urban
· Frontline / essential workers

· Older adults
· Immigrants/Refugees

Those selected to speak during the Forum will be sent an e-mail with additional information prior to the event.

Information gathered at the Listening Forum will be collected and summarized with recommendations on what are needed to successfully move through this recovery period. The summary document and recommendations will be presented to the Governor’s Office and state agencies.

This is a barrier-free event, and requests for accommodations, including translation or interpreter services, should be made on the registration form provided above by Monday, July 20th, 5:00 PM
