Asian American Political Activation (AAPA) Program

About AAPA

"Asian American" was first coined by Yuji Ichioka and Nancy Gee at UC Berkeley in 1968 through founding the Asian American Political Alliance to develop a unified and politicized identity for diasporic communities from Asia. Grounded in this legacy of the Asian American Movement, the Asian American Political Activation Program (AAPA) offers internships and programs to grow Asian American students’ political consciousness around AA/PI/SSWANA experiences, history, and community issues both on and off campus.
