In 2015, AAPIP celebrated 25 years, a significant milestone for any organization. For AAPIP, it was a special opportunity to connect and activate our vast and diverse network. We celebrated leadership in its many forms while honoring the spirit of our activist founders through the recognition of 25 Leaders who take important actions every day to lift up AAPI communities around the nation.
The 25 Leaders in Action honorees represented a diverse group spanning a wide range of organizations, years of experience, roles, and sectors throughout the country. Additionally they address issues from immigrant rights to LGBTQ matters, from education and affordable housing to racial equity.
From August to December 2015, we celebrated our awardees and had them share their stories on our blog.
