The California Asian Pacific Islander (API) 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 API communities. The API Policy Summit will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center on May 2 – 3, 2011.

If your organization would like to facilitate a workshop at the California Asian Pacific Islander Policy Summit on the morning or afternoon of May 2, 2011, please download and complete this form. Workshop proposals are due by January 20, 2011.

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. Priority will be given to workshops that equip participants with the knowledge to navigate effectively through local, state, and federal systems. 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, role playing, and other “hands-on” project formats.
