May is nationally recognized as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and we invite you to be a part of it by joining us for APANO’s Voices of Change 2017: A Celebration of APA Heritage Month held on May 4th, 2017 at 6PM at the Oaks Park Dance Pavilion. Join 300+ community leaders and supporters for an exciting evening of cultural performance, delectable dining, and a prestigious keynote by strategist, politico, and coalition builder Gregory Cendana, the first openly gay and youngest-ever Executive Director of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance and Institute for Asian Pacific American Leadership & Advancement.
As a special treat, we will be unveiling our first-ever series of commissioned artwork created in collaboration with 6 local API artists, based on APANO’s values of “We envision a just world where…”. Be the first to get a glimpse of what this just world can look like.
As many of you may know, APANO is in the midst of fundraising for a multicultural community center through our $2 million Roots to Rise campaign. This future center will be a hub for healing, services, civic engagement, cultural work, and organizing, and will anchor one of the most linguistically and ethnically diverse communities in the metro area. All funds raise from Voices of Change will be dedicated toward supporting this project.
