California Asian & Pacific Islander Policy Summit: Call for Skills & Strategy Workshops

The 2012 California Asian Pacific Islander Policy Summit's workshop proposals must move our communities to a higher level of advocacy. Summit Conveners and Track Chairs will only consider proposals that demonstrate how participants will be better equipped with concrete advocacy skills. Priority will also be given to proposals that strengthen each participant's ability to strategically impact local, state, and federal public policy.

In addition to the required skills-building, we are looking for workshops that will:

* Reflect the diversity of the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) community, including race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, language and geography.

* Utilize current issues impacting the AA and NHPI community, including representation from a wide array of disciplines, fields, populations, and sectors as a means of teaching or facilitating specific skills.

* Employ innovative training methods, including using audio-visual aids, small group discussions, mock trainings, role playing, and other "hands-on" project formats.
The deadline to submit a workshop proposal is January 27. For more information, or to fill out workshop submission form, go here. And for further information on the API Policy Summit, go to the website here and the Facebook event here.
