2012 WASHINGTON, DC NATIONAL CONFERENCE
The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) is organizing a weekend-long training and issue briefing for leaders of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) organizations. Local leaders from around the country will convene to network, learn about current issues, share strategies, and build the infrastructure of their organizations. Two members from each NQAPIA member organization will be invited to participate in the Summit to build a diverse body of participants (gender, gender expression, ethnicity, age, region, etc.). NQAPIA will cover lodging, meals, and ground transport; local organizations will cover their own flights.
