So You Want to Run for Office: Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Edition with Public Wise
In the United States, only 0.9% of elected leaders identify as Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI). Yet, the total number of AAPI folks in the U.S. is over six times this percentage and accounts as the fastest growing demographic in the country.
That’s why we’re thrilled to partner again with Public Wise to host our So You Want to Run for Office training with a focus on prospective and early-stage AAPI candidates.
Examining the unique challenges and opportunities for AAPI candidates, our expert trainer will cover the ins and outs of making the decision to run and for what office. Whether you’re already gearing up to run or have maybe only considered it, this training is for you!
We invite folks who are AAPI and looking to make a change in their communities to attend!
You will learn the following in this training:
- Understand the steps necessary to run for office
- Explain best practices for choosing which office to run for
- Identify what support you’ll need from your team
- Prepare for sharing your decision to run with friends and family
