About the Convening
Building AAPI Power: Being the Change that Transforms America October 24-25, 2017 New Orleans, LA
We convened our grantee partners, along with donors and special guests, in New Orleans from October 24-25, 2017 at the Ashe Cultural Arts Center and the Troubadour Hotel. Participants had a chance to share insights on forming a racial and gender justice analysis to the AAPI experience in America and the need for a culturally affirming, vibrant AAPI movement. Highlights included a panel, “AAPIs Rising to the Challenge” featuring Taeku Lee (Asian American Decisions), Haris Aqeel & Christina Coloroso (Catalist), and Karthick Ramakrishnan (AAPI Data) and workshops on fundraising, leadership types, base building, and Integrated Voter Engagement.
