Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP)
Since its founding in 1982, Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc. (LEAP) has been intent on growing leaders within Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the country. When LEAP opened its doors 25 years ago, it was founded on a simple yet powerful idea; that in order for AAPI communities to realize their full potential and to foster robust participation in the larger democratic process, those communities would have to begin producing leaders who could advocate and speak on their behalf. A national, nonprofit organization, LEAP works to achieve full participation and equality for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders through leadership, empowerment, and policy. Learn More
