2014 Legislative Day

To Ohio AAPI Youth:

The 2014 Ohio AAPI Legislative Day on Thursday March 6th (10:15 to 3:15 pm), at the Ohio Statehouse, is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Ohio government, meet others from across Ohio, and become active in issues of concern. All costs, including transportation, lunch, and snacks will be covered. (Bus transportation will be provided from, Cincinnati, Cleveland/Akron, Dayton, and Toledo.)

The day begins with the keynote speaker, Mee Moua, a dynamic leader, former Congresswoman, and current Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, a leading national civil rights organization. You will find her talk inspiring!

A panel of legislators will, then, discuss their views and visions on a variety of timely issues, and a Q & A session will follow.

During lunch, you will meet other attendees and receive information about getting to know your legislators.

The Youth Engagement Session will take place at 12:40 to 1:40 pm. Youth leaders will serve on the panel. Discussion will focus on the value of youth engagement and how you can become involved in various activities and leadership roles. You will also have a chance to meet other high school and college students from across Ohio.

Between 1:40 and 2:40 pm you can visit with one of our legislative leaders. These leaders will appreciate meeting you and hearing your points of view.

At 2:40 pm all participants will get together to share their visiting experiences with the group as a whole.

Forms for an excused absence from school are available by request.
