AAPIs for Civic Empowerment Education Fund organized the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Campaign School to develop the skills needed to advance AAPI power-building strategies at every level, and to strengthen organizations to mobilize AAPIs across the country. The School elevated integrated voter engagement (IVE) strategies that combine grassroots organizing with voter mobilization as a key path to building power. New AAPI civic engagement leaders received training by seasoned IVE practitioners to become better organizers, campaign leads, and directors. The School consisted of plenary sessions setting the political landscape, breakout trainings for skills development, and strategy sessions to address specific challenges. Together we explored our strategic role as AAPIs to build governing power in our states, and strategies to unite a multiracial voter bloc at the local, state, and national levels.
