How might we...
- How might we build power and shift worldview in our communities?
- How Might We cultivate a larger statewide network of APEN activists to build power locally and throughout the state to win our policy priorities and campaign?
- How might we determine our focus on initial approach to individual membership? What would statewide membership look like structurally for API communities?
If we develop members to grow capacity, then we have a greater ability to shift the political worldview of API immigrants and refugees in CA towards a Just Transition framework.
