Call for Speakers

The Association of Pacific and Asian Women (APAW) at Washington State University (Pullman, WA) is looking for speakers for their CAPTIVATE Conference, March 25, 2006. The CAPTIVATE Conference is an annual student conference coordinated by APAW at the WSU Pullman campus. CAPTIVATE stands for Community, Activism, and Pride Today….to build Identity, Vision, and Achievements Tomorrow. Our goal is to celebrate these messages and to affirm our commitments to the EMPOWERMENT of AAPI women.

Tentatively, the conference will focus on Moving Inner Knowledge Into Action and looking at how an understanding of colonization and internalized racism can create a platform for personal action in the world. The conference itself is free – attendees will only need to cover lodging and travel. Presenters will be provided with transportation and lodging costs as well as a small stipend.

If you are interested in being considered as a presenter, please contact Debi Robinson-Smith (drosmith [at] wsu [dot] edu).
