Power in Solidarity

The Event Begins In...










Event Details

About Power in Solidarity

Over 30 years ago, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Native American professionals in philanthropy came together to build a new vision for power in the sector. From this vision, our organizations were born: Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) and Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP).

In honor of our shared origin story, AAPIP and NAP are hosting a Gathering of our relatives and relations in the philanthropy field. Together, we will celebrate the leadership of our peoples and cultures in the sector, develop strategies to build power and increase resources in our communities, and most importantly—have fun!


Start: Sunday, June 26
End: Wednesday, June 29

Hyatt Regency Seattle
808 Howell Street
Seattle, WA 98101




Why do we gather?

We gather to live and express our commitment to transformative solidarity, to redefine power in the spirit of generosity, and to celebrate the unanticipated and extraordinary rewards of togetherness.

Over three days, we will:

Welcome and celebrate the reunion of our philanthropic families with new and long-time members.

Gather as AAPIP and NAP networks to share our strategic direction, hold annual meetings, and attend network-specific business.

Gather as a larger community to center solidarity and leadership that can grow beyond our time together.

The health and safety of all involved is our top priority.
