Uniting the Voices of San Francisco’s API Community

For years, policy advocates and individual organizations have looked to local government for support, but their voices weren’t enough to leverage funding. API Council is a 40-member citywide coalition that advocates for equitable policies and resources on behalf of API communities. Our 40-members serve over 250,000 API residents in San Francisco. The API Council has advocated for funding to sustain and expand core services in housing, and health and human services.
