About the Convening
AAPIs in 2018: Keeping Democracy and Justice Alive March 12-14, 2018 Chicago, IL
On March 12-14, 2018, we brought together grantee partners, funders, and special guests to Chicago to build relationships amongst a new cohort of grantees and foster conversations on creating a culturally affirming, vibrant AAPI movement. The event kicked off with an evening panel on AAPI Community Power featuring Dan Ichinose (AAJC-LA), and Tram Nguyen (New Virginia Majority Education Fund) and Sayu Bhojwani (New American Leaders). Participants also engaged in sessions ranging from conversations on strategic alliance building and gender justice to trainings on data, election campaign basics, governing power, base building, learning to manage staff and delegate effectively.
