Asian American Women in Advocacy Panel

While Asian American women have made a significant impact on the United States in a wide variety of fields including politics, their work and presence are often overlooked. Despite facing both racial discrimination and sexism, Asian American women have continued to challenged stereotypes, fought to uplift their communities, and paved the way for future generations.

Through this panel discussion, we hope to amplify the Asian American women’s voices in Massachusetts, highlight their achievements and impact and have them share about their community engagement and public service journey.

Attend our event with Asian American Women’s Political Initiative and Commonwealth Seminar!

Friday, March 19th 6:30PM
