APIAVote to host voter mobilization and education training for Asian Americans in North Carolina
APIAVote, a national non-partisan organization that works to mobilize Asian Americans and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in electoral and civic participation, is hosting a training session called the Norman Y. Mineta Leadership Institute in Raleigh, N.C., at the North Carolina Justice Center, the parent organization of NC Policy Watch.
Partnering with local organizations such as the National Association of Asian American Professionals-RTP (NAAAP-RTP), Asian Pacific Americans for Progress-NC (APAP-NC), Blueprint NC, and the NC Justice Center, APIAVote seeks to encourage Asian Americans to become more active and engaged in the electoral process and democratic way of life, regardless of political affiliation.
The workshop seeks to provide a framework for civic engagement and effect tools for community organizers to build civic engagement programs in Asian American communities.
The training will be followed by a livestream of the APIAVote Presidential Town Hall broadcasted from George Mason University, where Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates are invited to speak to the AAPI community.
