We’re pleased to announce the date for this year’s Asian American Community Development Conference (#AACDC). The 10th annual conference will take place October 25, 2017 at New York University’s Kimmel Center.

Each year, Asian Americans for Equality convenes more than 250 policy makers, advocates, community leaders, philanthropists, and community development practitioners from across New York City and the country to discuss emerging issues facing Asian, Asian American, immigrant, and low-income communities.

This year’s theme: Achieving Equality For All.

As the first decade of the conference comes to a close, doors have opened to new opportunities, new technologies, and a rising generation of leaders seeking to activate their communities in different ways. At the same time, our mission to achieve equality for all is even more pertinent in today’s political climate — as immigrants, communities of color, low- to moderate-income residents, small businesses, and even our democracy itself, face threats to progress.

We are looking forward to a full day of energetic conversation and knowledge exchange between community leaders, experts, a wide range of organizations — and you. For more details — including ticketing, scholarship, and sponsorship — please visit the 2017 AACDC website. We hope you can join us! Click here if you’re interested in volunteering.
