Embracing the hopes and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans.

Our voter registration programs have helped St. Louisans of all ethnicities become more involved citizens. Our participation in annual lobby days in Washington, DC and Jefferson City has increased our visibility and helped inform our community and our elected officials about issues of vital importance.
From art exhibits to volunteer work, engaging with more corporations, agencies and organizations leads to greater understanding of the hopes, dreams and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans – and allows us to find common ground. We have also developed deeper relationships with communities across St. Louis.
We help train college students across Missouri in how to be active leaders on their campuses. This past year, our mid-career mentorship participants emerged as stronger leaders, with some landing a job in their chosen field and others overcoming their fear of public speaking to compete and win in local and regional competitions.

Support our work in advocacy, community education and leadership development!
