The Asian American Women's Political Initiative (AAWPI) is the only political leadership organization for Asian American women in the country.

Our Mission

We work to ensure that Asian American women and the Asian American community have a voice in their government. As a part of our work, the AAWPI Fund was separately established to develop a first-of-its-kind legislative training, internship and mentoring program for Asian American women college students and recent graduates.


Being surrounded by powerhouse women, who are thriving and so willing to mentor and support you was empowering. I am so grateful to have participated in this program.
