Here’s a preview of three plenaries and workshops we’ll be hosting:

From the Margins to the Margin of Victory: Growing AAPI Political Power in 2024 and Beyond 

Once on the margins, the Asian American and Pacific Islander community is now emerging as a formidable political force that could prove decisive in key battlegrounds in 2024 and beyond. This dynamic plenary session will provide a fascinating exploration of the exponential growth of AAPI voting power over recent election cycles and how it is changing long-held narratives about this influential voting bloc. Drawing from the latest research and analysis, our expert speakers will unpack the key issues driving AAPI civic engagement, shedding light on where the AAPI community’s political power is concentrated and the states where they can dramatically impact outcomes in 2024.

Localize the Vote Joint Plenary 

Join us for a session dedicated to unleashing the full power of AAPI voters at the grassroots level. This plenary will focus on mobilizing AAPI voters around three critical issues impacting our communities at the local level: alien land laws, DEI laws, and protecting cultural districts. Get ready to make a difference – the power lies within our local communities!

Setting the Agenda for 2024 and Beyond

Since 2004, the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) has represented the broader Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander community through the development of comprehensive policy recommendations. Join NCAPA’s coalition leaders as they discuss the most prominent issues impacting our AANHPI communities highlighted in this year’s 2024 Policy Platform. Panelists will share the importance of policy and advocacy across a set of issues such as immigration, civil rights, healthcare, education, housing/economic justice, and more.
