Earlier this month, Little Lights Founder and Executive Director Steve Park attended a White House listening session with Philip Kim, White House Senior Advisor for Public Engagement. Mr. Kim listened to the concerns and ideas of 20 Asian American Christian leaders from around the country who are part of a delegation from Asian American Christian Collaborative (AACC).  

The Asian American Christian Collaborative was founded by Raymond Chang to provide a network to help Asian American Christians to engage in social issues and to amplify the voices and histories of Asian Americans. 


During the listening sessions, AACC delegates brought up four primary concerns and issues – gun violence and reform; mental health; Asian American history in education and curriculum; and racial solidarity.

Steve had the privilege of sharing AACC’s value for racial solidarity and asking for the administration’s support in providing funding for racial healing programs and convening faith leaders together who want to commit to racial solidarity, especially among Asian American and African-American faith leaders.  

After this gathering among Asian-American faith leaders and the White House Senior Advisor, there is genuine hope. As we celebrate Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May, please pray for a move of God in this community to be a force in God’s heart for justice and healing.
