Washington Leadership Program

Washington Leadership Program

Through weekly sessions over the summer, the Washington Leadership Program introduces students to Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) leaders in public service who can inform and inspire students’ own civic engagement. Through panel discussions and participatory activities, this free program served over 220 individuals this past year.

In 2019, the theme was “Passing the Mic,” highlighting the multitude of communities under the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) umbrella and creating space for marginalized community members to tell their stories and facilitate understanding at the intersections of their identities.

The Washington Leadership Program gave me valuable insight to various aspects of our nation’s politics and gave me the chance to meet several inspirational individuals. Being a part of the CAPAL family made this summer memorable.
