CPC Join CACF and AAPI Organizations Launch Healing-Centered Youth Workshop Series
CPC is proud to join the Coalition for Asian Children and Families (CACF) and seven other AAPI organizations in the launch of a co-created healing-centered youth workshop series, the Healing Hub. The goal of the first-of-its-kind initiative is to support youth in the development of racial literacy skills, understanding complex layers and intersections of the AAPI identity, the development of a strong voice that can support the health and safety of our communities at large.
CPC has organized three sessions of workshops to date and will continue through out the month of May. Workshops will also be conducted at AAPI organizations including South Asian Youth Action (SAYA), Apex for Youth, Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC), MinKwon Center for Community Action, Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE), Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) and Mekong NYC.

“CPC's goal is to ensure that New York City's Asian American community members feel safe, respected, and included in their neighborhoods and across NYC. Since January 2020, over 3,800 incidents of anti-Asian harassment have been reported nationally, with women twice as likely as men to be targeted. Asian American New Yorkers have experienced over 1,100 bias incidents, causing fear and trauma,” said Kevin Tse, Deputy Director of Education & Career Services, Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC). “The CACF Healing Hub is very much needed in our community right now and CPC appreciates CACF for spearheading this initiative!”
