Pan-Asian Voices for Equity – Minnesota

Community | Action | Justice

Minutes from Oct. 13 meeting up

October 13, 2011 minutes are up now at our meeting minutes page.

A quick summary:

A group of about 23 folks attended the meeting and discussed the mission and vision drafted by the steering committee.

Attendees shared an interest in collaborating across Asian communities, being with other progressive community members, wanting to do community building and having a support network where we could share lessons learned.

Some participants also lifted up specific issue areas they wanted to work on as well such as marriage equality, anti-racism, environmental, education, youth development and health. The group had time to provide feedback on the mission and vision and further those discussion in smaller group discussions.

Some of the key topics discussed were:

  • What do we envision for the MN APIA community?
  • What exactly is this group and what is this group doing?
  • Comments about the mission/vision statements.
  • We need strategy on how to move forward.
  • What we’re hoping for the group.
