Investing in the Asian Minnesotan Community
the Coalition for Asian American Leaders is FACING THIS PRESENT MOMENT WITH HOPE and Action.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Minnesota's Asian community in numerous ways.
The Coalition for Asian American Leaders (CAAL) has responded to the increase in anti-Asian sentiments and found new ways to support leaders and nonprofits.
In this video interview, CAAL’s co-founder & executive and network director, Bo Thao-Urabe, shares some of the creative ways she has seen people caring for each other, and where she draws hope.
“We created a fund to support specifically Asian Minnesotan nonprofits who are on the front lines of providing language and navigation services to support people who are unemployed or who are needing to get help for their families,” Bo said. “Listening to the community is really what gives me hope about how we’re going to get through this."
