Budget and Bill Legislation


  • API Equity BudgetTo begin addressing historic inequities and the recent attacks adversely impacting AANHPI communities in California, the commission worked closely with the leadership of the Asian Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus (APILC), budget staff, and partnership with Stop AAPI Hate Coalition and over 150 CBOs to develop and advocate for the #APIEquity Budget in order for California to start bridging the divide between our communities and the state as our communities respond to the increasing attacks on AANHPI communities. With the leadership of the APILC and Governor’s Office, as well as all the support from Budget Consultants and community partners, together, we were able to secure $165.5 million over a three-year period.
