About

The National Lighting the Community Summit brings together policy makers, elected officials, corporations, pastors, media, community leaders and other stakeholders to provide faith leaders and underserved communities to learn how to access funding opportunities, build successful partnerships with various stakeholders, and better implement programs & services for the community so that the faith community can serve as a "light to the world." It provides a forum for collaboration, engagement and dialogue, as well as training workshops to address key economic and social issues, such as housing, small business, mental health, and immigration reform, amongst others. Additionally, the conference provides an opportunity to highlight great models and resources in the AAPI community and as well as advocate for issues that impact AAPIs and other underrepresented communities we serve.

In addition to the plenary sessions and workshops,  the conference will include the National Asian American Prayer Breakfast and the 20th Anniversary Awards Gala Dinner recognizing those who have contributed to the advancement of the community.  

join us to learn
  • How to activate faith and nonprofit leaders to maximize their community engagement
