Join APIAVote in Washington, D.C. during Inaugural Week! Held in conjunction with the Pearl Presidential Inaugural Ball, "Moving the Dream Forward" will consist of morning briefings that will help our communities coordinate and coalesce, as we again visit the theme of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. On the eve of the historic inauguration of President Barack Obama, APIAVote will be hosting a debrief on the 2008 Election; contextualize and explain the transition process; help frame the AAPI policy agenda(s) as we move forward with the new White House, the agencies, and a new Congress; and host a panel and discussion on how we work together to move a progressive AAPI policy agenda forward.
Here's the schedule. Topics include AAPIs' Roles in the 2008 Election, A History of AAPIs in the Transition Process, Framing the AAPI Policy Agenda, and Continuing a Progressive AAPI Movement. Registration for the briefing is $60, and $40 for students and seniors. Register here. For those who won't be in D.C. and can't attend the briefing, there will be a live online webcast, for a fee of $5.00. Technology! For more information about the whole shebang, go here.
