Description

As Asians and Pacific Islanders become the fastest growing groups in the United States, we must organize and advocate for the health and happiness of our ever-changing communities. As of February 2021, there are only 18 Asian and Pacific Islander senators and representatives - but we can work to change that. In this workshop, will explore ways in which Asian and Pacific Islanders can shape the institutions and laws that govern their lives through effective civic engagement, policy advocacy, running for office, and commission appointments at the local level. Then, attendees will be walked through the process of running for office and leading a successful campaign.
