Nine outstanding young API leaders have been selected for the Helen Zia Fellowship for Social Change. They are Wendy Chuah, Kenny Gong, Maggie Kong, Siddharth P. Kulkarni, Cynthia Liao, Carmina Ocampo, Chibo Shinagawa, Trangdai Glassey-Tranguyen, and Daniel Wu. Each were selected on the basis of their leadership potential, commitment to serving their API community, and interest in advancing social justice.
Named after the award-winning journalist, author, and activist, the Helen Zia Fellowship is a 4-month leadership program to train the next generation of API community leaders to effectively advocate for their community’s needs and interests. The program will support the work of progressive organizations that are advocating for fairness and justice in California, including API Equality and Asian Americans for Civil Rights & Equality (AACRE).
