The Board of Directors of National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (National CAPACD) is proud to announce that we have selected Seema Agnani to serve as our next Executive Director. Seema will assume her new leadership role in January 2017.
Our collective communities are reeling from the results of Tuesday’s election. We grieve, our allies grieve, and our communities grieve from the hurt that has been created by this campaign and the anticipation of the challenges ahead. We must also come together to respond to the hateful rhetoric and violence directed towards Muslims, immigrants, LGTBQ communities, women and communities of color during this presidential campaign. We must work together to protect those vulnerable communities whose very right to exist has been challenged during this campaign.
