Join APIAVote in Washington, D.C. during Inaugural Week! Held in conjunction with the Pearl Presidential Inaugural Ball and the supporting coalition, the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans, “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 panels that discuss the following: the AAPI impact on the 2008 Election; contextualizing and explaining the transition process; helping frame the AAPI policy agenda(s) as we move forward with the new White House, the agencies, and a new Congress; and exploring how we work together to move a progressive AAPI policy agenda forward. All information is below including how to stream live if you can not make it down to Washington, DC.
