SPARC: Seeding Policy through Research and Community

In January 2024, AAPI Data held its inaugural AAPI SPARC Summit in Sacramento, California, gathering over 100+ attendees from across the state for a daylong summit of workshops built with an eye toward action. Attendees represented a wide array of sectors, including staff from government agencies and legislative offices, community organizations, and community-supportive philanthropies.

The purpose of the SPARC Summit was to cultivate knowledge, build relationships, and strengthen cross-sector partnerships that advance actionable solutions to issues affecting Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities. Main issue tracks were focused in the areas of: health, education, and economic justice.

We look forward to continuing to build from the foundation built at our inaugural SPARC Summit and make this policy and action-focused convening an annual conference.

Be on the lookout for future updates from our team!
