Many young Asian Americans want to become civicleaders, but don’t know how.

In a hands-on, interactiveway, we will teach young Asian Americans who want to seek elective office: (a)how to prepare yourself to be a candidate; (b) how to develop a message (whatyou want to do for your constituents and why you’re the best person to do it);(c) how to build a campaign team; (d) how to raise money; and, (e) how toconduct mass communication with the public, both during the campaign and afteryou’re in office. For those interested in becoming a judge, we will teach howto prepare yourself to be a judge and how to seek a judgeship.
