A Time to H.E.A.L.
Health . Equity. Advocacy . Leadership

This past pandemic year has been wrought with much pain from deaths, racism, economic losses to violence and division. In the AAPI community, we have seen much of these disparities including continued anti-Asian hate. We recognize much  healing  is needed as individuals, communities and as a nation but we need the tools and resources to rebuild our future. This year's summit is to look at where we are, how do we lead and do things differently that will bring healing and renewal that will lead to unity, health and equity for all. We ask you to join us.

The National Lighting the Community Summit brings together policy makers, elected officials, corporations, pastors, media, community leaders and other stakeholders to provide faith leaders and underserved communities to learn how to access funding opportunities, build successful partnerships with various stakeholders, and better implement programs & services for the community so that the faith community can serve as a "light to the world." It provides a forum for collaboration, engagement and dialogue, as well as training workshops to address key economic and social issues, such as housing, small business, mental health, and immigration reform, amongst others. Additionally, the conference provides an opportunity to highlight great models and resources in the AAPI community and as well as advocate for issues that impact AAPIs and other underrepresented communities we serve.

In addition to the plenary sessions and workshops,  the conference will include the National Asian American Prayer Breakfast and the 20th Anniversary Awards Gala Dinner recognizing those who have contributed to the advancement of the community.
