(Sharing some reflections from our recent convening – written by Megan Powers, NGEC’s Capacity Building Manager in Minnesota.)
A question bubbled up among many during NGEC’s recent OFP cohort convening in New Orleans: How can a group help to create and harness a community’s identity?
After viewing “A Village Called Versailles”, visiting with New Orleans residents and organizers, and much discussion, cohort participants noted that part of the success of the neighborhood’s organizing work can be attributed to a strong sense of community identity.
AAPIP’s Metropolitan Washington, DC/Baltimore Chapter, in conjunction with the Agnes E. Meyer Foundation, published the first guide for funders on nonprofits serving Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in our region.
