With the November 2014 election is fast approaching, APACE and APIAVote presents the Norman Y. Mineta Leadership Institute for the community to learn how Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a political force in King County. Be part of the effort to increase voter participation and learn how it can make a real impact on issues such as employment discrimination, immigration, the economy, education, and health care.

Non-profit organizations and volunteers interested in increasing civic engagement will leave the training with real tools. At the Norman Y.
