Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021
Dear APAICS Supporters,
2020 was a year that challenged us all. Adapting all of our programs and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month events to a virtual platform was no easy feat. Yet, we managed to provide the content and community you expect from APAICS while maintaining the safety of everyone’s well-being. I have immense gratitude for the support APAICS received from its event partners, sponsors, members of Congress, community partners, and most importantly YOU! We’re thrilled to share what APAICS has to offer as we continue to build our programming to expand the AAPI political pipeline in 2021. Whether it’s coming to our Appetite with APAICS events or leadership academies, we hope that you’ll continue to be a part of our community.
How To: Run for Office
