March 2015 Announcements

Membership Meeting

We are thrilled to announce the agenda for our March 25th membership meeting. The Executive Board will announce our organizing plan for 2015, which aims to ensure that the AAPI community is a critical voting block for the Democratic Party in 2016. Join us in mobilizing the AAPI community towards Democratic ideals!

Additionally, our guest speakers will be representatives from the Climate Action Campaign. They will educate and engage us around the Climate Action Plan, which is a legally enforceable document which sets out goals for the following: (1) energy and water efficient buildings; (2) clean and renewable energy; (3) biking, walking and transit; (4) zero waste; (5) climate resiliency.
