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 57-member citywide coalition that advocates for equitable policies and resources on behalf of API communities. Our 57-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.

⭐READ our full joint statement below, released with over 40 organizations from across the Bay Area.

⭐We must invest in long-term community-centered solutions that create spaces for cross-racial healing that address underlying causes and create ways for all to thrive. We believe that our strength is in unity, not division, and that our histories and our futures are intertwined. That is why we are committed to working with Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Pacific Islander communities for long-term shared vision and solutions to stop the violence in all our communities.
