At the dinner we celebrated the accomplishments of 14 emerging API leaders who successfully completed our Community Leaders Program. These leaders spent the past six months learning essential skills such as community organizing, policy advocacy, environmental justice, and many others. They applied their knowledge to help the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority solve real life challenges facing the local community. We are confident that, wherever they go from here, all of them will continue applying their ACLF experience to expand their work and service toward the API community.
ACLF also awarded Quang Nguyen (CLP 2004) the Alumni Achievement Award and presented Vera and Joey Ing with the Kip Tokuda Award. These three figures have made important contributions to the API community and have been strong allies of ACLF.
Thank you again for your commitment and support of ACLF.
