2019 Washington Leadership Program Session VI: What’s in a Name? Labels as Political Identity

July 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This session will focus on how United States immigration and naturalization law has shaped the myriad communities under the AANHPI umbrella, from the territories to the continental US. Participants will interrogate how labels are applied to AANHPI minority identities, whether surrounding refugee or national or legal status, and how difference communities are impacted by policies in respect to those labels. Registration for the event will begin at 5:30pm with our program following promptly at 6:00pm. All WLP sessions are free to the public, but seating is limited. Please register online to reserve your seat. Dinner will be provided.

More About The Washington Leadership Program

The Washington Leadership Program (WLP) provides a space for young AANHPI students interning in Washington, D.C. to come together, build community, and explore their heritage within the context of public service. Through six sessions over the summer, WLP introduces students to AANHPI public service leaders who can inform and inspire students’ own civic engagement.

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. We envisions a future with equitable AANHPI representation throughout all levels of government and public service.


By registering for CAPAL’s Washington Leadership Program, you give permission to be recorded or photographed during the session. Food provided at this event may contain nuts, dairy, gluten, and other allergens. Vegetarian options will be available.
