Past Catalyst for Change Gala 2019
Thank you for being part of CACF’s 3rd Annual Catalyst for Change Awards Gala at Edison Ballroom on November 4, 2019. With over 300 people in attendance, we raised nearly $200,000 that evening that will help CACF fight against racism and build a community too powerful to ignore.
It was a night to celebrate leadership and innovation within the Asian Pacific American community — to celebrate Catalysts for Change. We’re incredibly grateful for the commitment of our honorees to furthering social justice and equity for Asian American children and families.
