#tbt to the Kick-Off Reception of Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL)‘s Washington Leadership Program in 1996. See anyone who looks familiar?
From board member, to vice president, to esteemed speaker, Christine Chen, of Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote), has supported CAPAL. Maybe twenty years from now, attendees of this year’s Washington Leadership Program Sessions will come back to help young AAPIs through their careers and lives as well. Thank you, Christine, for the generosity and guidance you’ve provided throughout the years!
