Los Angeles, CA – On Friday, June 21, 2019, the CAUSE Leadership Network convened in an exclusive, member-only breakfast meeting with the Asian & Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus (APILC) at Los Angeles City Hall. Members engaged with Caucus Chair Assemblymember David Chiu, Assemblymember Rob Bonta, and Assemblymember Ash Kalra in an intimate and open dialogue.
The CAUSE Leadership Network is an invitation-only, membership program and platform for millennial leaders to channel skills, expertise and passion for the purpose of cross-sector advancement and the empowerment of APA communities. Through opportunities for key connections, knowledge-sharing, and dialogue, CLN is a space dedicated to the mutual advancement of emerging APA leaders across all sectors. CLN members are committed to creating space for and driving our collective APA community forward.
Attending CAUSE Leadership Network members connected with the Assembly Caucus members on issue priorities, such as housing and homelessness, and their vision for the California API community.
The Caucus members provided insights into how Network members could work in collaboration with the Caucus to elevate the API community — especially beyond elected and appointed positions. After discussions, Leadership Network members were invited to further network and connect with the Assemblymembers.
A huge thank you to Board of Public Works Commissioner Jessica Caloza for hosting the session for the CAUSE Leadership Network!
