The Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL) seeks to empower Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) youth by increasing access to public service opportunities and building a strong AANHPI public service pipeline.
CAPAL envisions a future with equitable AANHPI representation throughout all levels of government and public service.
We address systemic barriers to careers in public service by connecting AANHPI youth with opportunities, knowledge, and resources to become leaders and influential decision-makers.
We strive to cultivate a vibrant AANHPI community that fosters a culture of mutual support and belonging.
We celebrate the diversity of the AANHPI community and empower the authentic participation of all individuals.
We advance a society that is fair, just, and that rectifies systemic or historic barriers-both within and beyond the AANHPI community. We tailor our resources and approaches to broader context and circumstances.
We uphold an unwavering commitment to strong ethics and morals throughout all aspects of CAPAL: decision-making, operations, fundraising, partnerships, and communications.
