Our Chapter is Rockin’

Dear DC-Chapter members,

You heard right. The DC-Chapter is making some noise! I’m so proud of all of the committees for their hard work and dedication the past month. To keep everyone in the loop of what’s going on and how to be more engaged, I wanted send this brief summary of activities on behalf of the officers:

1. The Communications & Outreach Committee entered a video submission to the White House Initiative on Asian Americans Pacific Islanders Contest this week. Thank you to those that participated in the taping and editing process. We will send the final video out soon so keep posted!

2. The Development & Fundraising Committee will be having a meeting on Monday, November 7, 6:30pm at the AFL-CIO to start planning an exciting karaoke fundraiser for the end of the year. Email Yu-lan Duggan yduggan@gmail.com if you wish to attend or need more information. All our welcome and encouraged to pitch in!

3. Our next APALA-DC Get Together & Grassroots Rising Film Viewing is coming up! If you haven’t done so yet, please RSVP so we can get a clear head count for the food. We look forward to hanging out with everyone and getting some APA labor history in our blood while we’re at it.

4. Election day is less than a week away! We encourage everyone to make some time to pitch in at the AFL-CIO Phone Bank to persuade our union brothers & sisters in OH to vote NO on Issue 2! Phone bank hours are all day until Tuesday, November 8. If you would like to participate, email me at Katrina.dizon@gmail.com and we can rally some APALA folks to accompany you during your slot.

And if you can’t join us, you can call from home by clicking here.

Again, thank you for all your hard work! If you wish to get more involved in any of the exciting projects above, please feel free to email me or any of the officers!

In Solidarity,

Katrina Dizon
APALA-DC President
