On May 8th, the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) released the “2012 Blueprint announced the release of the “NCAPA 2012 Policy Blueprint for Action: Our Communities. Our Priorities. Our Country.” The Blueprint serves as an entry point to learn more about six top priority issue areas facing Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders: Civil Rights, Education, Health, Housing and Economic Justice, Immigration and NHPI issues. Along with an introduction to these issues, there are also recommendations for stakeholders, policymakers and community leaders on how they can bring greater attention to and address the needs faced by AA and NHPI communities.
We encourage community-based organizations and leaders to share this Blueprint with others so that stakeholders, policymakers and allies can better understand the issues impacting AA and NHPI communities and ensure that AA and NHPI communities are continuously part of the policy discussion.
Help us spread the word about the blueprint!
