NYCAASC 2021 Conference: Snapshots

April 24 12:00 PM – 6:30 PM ET

Our conference this year is underscored by the fact that our current moment is a snapshot of a larger context. As Asian Americans, we are interested in connecting current events and social trends with past cultural and political movements and the legacy of Asians in America. With not only the pandemic, but police brutality, natural disasters, and revolutions occurring worldwide, we find ourselves looking for ways to make sense of ourselves and the world around us. While the past is the reason for our present, the future is dictated by our actions today, and as students and as citizens of the world, we want to move beyond passive understanding and have an active hand in shaping our future.

Key Issues for Lower Manhattan

  • Preserving and Securing Affordable Housing: now more than ever, having a safe place to call home is essential. As we continue to battle income inequality, saving existing affordable units, including NYCHA is a priority.
  • Protecting Our Social Safety Net: human services programs are lifelines for so many families. From UPK to adequately funding our public schools, immigrant services to senior services, investing in essential services keeps our communities strong.
  • Support Small Businesses: Decimated by the pandemic, our small businesses are the key to neighborhood stability. We must provide support for small businesses, foster opportunities for local entrepreneurship, and develop a network of local good wage jobs.
