  1. If you are a veteran community advocate or new to civic engagement and are seeking opportunities to interact with fellow volunteers and activists in the AAPI community, the OCA National Convention presents a wonderful opportunity for education and leadership encapsulated in its rich offering of programming tracks: Youth Leadership, College, Advocacy Workshops and Professional Development Seminars.

  2. Consider becoming a member of one of the nation's leading national organization dedicated to the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans in the United States.


  3. In addition to California Congresswoman Judy Chu's recognition with the OCA Outstanding Achievement Award, other honorees are James Hong, actor—OCA Outstanding Achievement Award; Ming-Na Wen, actress—OCA Pioneer Award; and Tyrus Wong, artist—OCA Pioneer Award.
