Communications and Civic Engagement

The Communications and Civic Engagement (CCE) department supports storytelling, outreach, and advocacy to build bridges between neighbors.

CCE’s mission is to connect with the community through outreach, advocacy, and relationship-building.

We serve as the communications arm of ASIA through managing our social media accounts, putting out our monthly newsletter, and sharing the stories of our community members through keeping in touch with the press or with programs such as Global Cafe.

CCE also promotes voter registration and voter education to uplift civic engagement within the Asian American, Pacific Islander, and naturalized communities.


Global Cafe

Stories from around the world


Global Café is a guest speaker series for members of multicultural communities to share their unique stories and perspectives with a broad audience. Each session takes place on the fourth Thursday of every month from spring to autumn, virtually and in person, and audience interaction is encouraged. Join us in learning about the different experiences and points of view of our neighbors from across the globe.
