2022 Summer Fellowship

Like droplets of water that flow outward to create ripples, Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders for Civic Empowerment Education Fund (AAPI FORCE-EF) centers and builds the political force of young people, elders, workers, tenants, immigrants, refugees, and working-class families and communities fighting for justice. 

When our communities come together in collective action, we empower ourselves to redefine democracy and transform our government from one that prioritizes superprofits for the wealthy, into a government that prioritizes care for our people.

About the Fellowship

As an organization that works to build political power for working class Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders across California, AAPI FORCE-EF seeks to train new leaders who will make waves in our movements for social justice and build lasting power for progressive change.

Over the course of eight weeks, Ripples of Change fellows will have the opportunity to learn fundamental skills in digital and electoral organizing through:

  • social media outreach

  • voter engagement 

  • get-out-the-vote tactics

Fellows will also launch creative and artistic projects to inspire AAPI youth to get civically engaged and take action. Applications due April 11.

Our tentative program start date for the fellowship is June 27th, 2022. This is a paid fellowship program with a rate of $20/hr, with fellows anticipating to work 25-30 hours each week.
