Join us as we focus on the future of equitable recovery in California

About this event

California's policy landscape is ever-evolving, especially post-COVID19. For our AAPI and small business communities who have weathered the storm, it can be very difficult to keep up with and understand how various changes in laws can impact their businesses. Resiliency is a critical focus for the State and small businesses alike. Join us as we cast a spotlight on programs, laws, and initiatives that have regional impact, as our communities equitably rebuild from the economic effect of COVID19 and look to a more prosperous future.
