NGEC Organization Fellows!

Recently, the Asian American Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy named 12 organizations as fellows in their National Gender & Equity Organizational Fellowship Program, which established a $2.7 million investment in twelve Asian American organizations in both California and Minnesota. This was a major undertaking with an interest in promoting the ideas of social justice.

The Minnesota cohort includes the Association for the Advancement of Hmong Women in Minnesota, Center for Hmong Arts and Talent, Centre for Asian Pacific Islanders, Lao Assistance Center of Minnesota, Shades of Yellow and Mu Performing Arts.

This weekend, I'll be posting some of the profiles on the key staff and the organizations so you have a better sense of who they are.
