The California Asian Pacific Islander Policy Summit is searching for a variety of groundbreaking skills building workshops and trainings that will provide community members the tools to address the broad range of issues impacting Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities.
The goal for these workshop sessions is to advance our community’s political, social, and economic well-being by providing participants with an expanded skill-set and knowledge for effective advocacy and organizing. We are looking for workshops that, as a whole, will:
- Equip participants with concrete and tangible skills that can be applied to their respective fields, such as making linkages between program implementation and policy advocacy.
- Reflect the diversity of the API community, including race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, language and geography.
- Highlight issues impacting the API community, including representation from a wide array of disciplines, fields, populations, and sectors.
- Facilitate linkages among diverse areas to strengthen common goals in public policy advocacy.
- Utilize innovative training methods, including audio-visual presentations, small group discussions, mock trainings, “hands-on” project formats.
