KALCA’s 16th Annual Gala: A Call to Action


You are cordially invited to KALCA’s 16th Annual Gala: A Call to Action on March 18, 2016 at The Yale Club. Reception starts at 6:30pm.

This year our theme “A Call to Action” highlights part of KALCA’s mission which is to increase civic participation in the AAPI community through advocacy, education and mobilization.

For the past 16 years, KALCA has strived to make this vision a reality for the next-generation of AAPI civic leaders through our College Internship Program, an intensive eight-week program that provides college students and recent graduates with the opportunity to learn about the civic and democratic processes from the inside of leading government offices, political campaigns, non-profit and community-based organizations in New York City. In addition to their public service internship, KALCA interns participate in seminars, professional development trainings, and are exposed to various cultural and networking events.

We hope that you will answer our “Call to Action” by attending or sponsoring the 2016 KALCA Gala!
