Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL) (2013-2015)


The Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL) is a project that was incubated with AAPIP and is now led by local Asian American leaders in Minnesota who are leveraging their assets to harness power to build unity, cohesion, and common agendas to advance equity in the State. Through its National Gender & Equity Campaign (NGEC), AAPIP opened its office in Minnesota in 2006 to invest in local efforts that build social justice infrastructure and leadership. Together with local leaders, AAPIP co-founded this locally led leadership effort.

CAAL is a concrete expression of how AAPIP leverages social capital, knowledge, and skills to develop leadership that is relevant and responsive to local environments.
