asian american civic project

I just heard about The Pipeline Project. It's an effort by Asian Pacific Americans for Progress to identify talented young Asian Americans, train them, and place them with progressive political campaigns—a pipeline into the political process. It's a great idea, and sounds like something a lot of young folks interested in politics will benefit from.

The project will provide paid fellowships for individuals to serve as full-time staffers on campaigns of candidates supportive of issues relevant to the Asian American community. The goal is to help lower the barriers for Asian Americans interested in becoming active in electoral politics.

For more information on the Asian American Civic Project, and how to apply, visit the recently-launched website here. They also could use some help with fundraising, so if you'd like to contribute, you can give by clicking here.
