The Asian Pacific Islander Leadership Network (APILN) is a regional community of LA Y Asian & Pacific Islander staff, volunteers, and their allies who share information and resources through social activities and meaningful experiences. Our goal is to advance the development of Asian and Pacific Islanders -- personal, professional, leadership, or other development -- by empowering their rise in the Movement through advocacy, networking, and mentoring.
