API Resiliency Recap 1

We can’t believe it’s already been 2 weeks since our API Resiliency Summit! A big thank you to all of our youth participants, community partners, co-sponsors, volunteers, and all those we may have missed!

The day was a beautiful reflection of the power, wisdom, and resiliency of Stockton and the Central Valley, and we can’t wait to keep pushing the work forward. Stay tuned for updates!

We’ll be showcasing photos from each part of the summit in the coming days. In this post you’ll see:
