Join JACL in WASHINGTON, D.C. for the first ever Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Advocacy Day to meet with Members of Congress in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Many groups make effective pushes on Capitol Hill to demonstrate their political power. On June 25, it is time for the AAPI community to mobilize for issues we cares about. Come advocate for reform on immigration enforcement (like Arizona's SB1070 and racial profiling), family reunification, E-Verify, and the DREAM Act.
Everyone is encouraged to participate and training will be provided. Prior experience making legislative visits is not required. Details on training and visits will be provided closer to the date. If you are not able to attend, help our efforts by registering anyways, and writing a letter of support that we could hand deliver to your Member of Congress for you.
If you are in DC on June 23 - 24, please join JACL for the Advancing Justice Conference.
Hosted by: Asian American Institute, Asian American Justice Center, Asian Law Caucus, Asian Pacific American Legal Center, Japanese American Citizens League, National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association, National Asian Pacific Center for Aging, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), and Southeast Asia Resource Action Center
