APACE is launching its first ever ANHPI candidate school! In light of the current political climate APACE was inspired to create a space by and for ANHPI’s where interested candidates and future community leaders could learn the fundamentals and build their networks.

We wanted to create a space where folks can talk about the unique challenges our communities face when running for office as well as find mentors to help lead the way. Our comprehensive curriculum will span 4 sessions from February to May, on the second Saturday of each month from 10am-3pm. While our mentors will mostly be from Western Washington, this information can be applied to a variety of campaigns from the local to national level.

Please be available on these dates before applying: 1/27 5-7pm, 2/12, 3/12, 4/16 and 5/14 from 10-3. Topics will cover the basics of campaigning, building support, ANHPI history and more.

Each session will have a guest speaker, lunch break, and interactive curriculum. All sessions to be held on zoom. Email Alisa Lee, Program Manager at alisa@apace-wa.org if you have questions.
