There is a pressing need to establish a coalition that takes the initiative to address issues that are affecting Southern Nevada’s growing AAPI community. The Asian Community Development Council will align the needs of the AAPI community with the philanthropic and community engagement goals of corporations.

Building a better Nevada community for AAPI.
