Nominate the Top 10 AAPI Progressives 2009

Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (APAP) recently announced that they will be compiling another Top 10 list for 2009. This is a time when Asian Americans are given the recognition they deserve and represent their communities with pride. Nominees may include community leaders, workers, students, college grads, faculty, staff, government officials, Hollywood, the private sector, etc. who are working tirelessly in advancing progressive values and representing our communities. Also, this is the perfect opportunity to nominate Fil-Ams who are ideal role models and have helped an “invisible group” like Filipinos to be properly represented in the U.S. In addition to celebrating Congress recognizing October as Filipino American History Month, everyone should nominate the ideal Fil-Am candidate(s) for this award as well as other Asian Americans who need a shout out and much needed accolades to the “top Asian Pacific American progressives” of 2009.

From Asian Pacific Americans for Progress:

To commemorate the first year of the Obama Administration and what can arguably be an era of progressive politics, APAP is rolling out with another Top 10 list! To close out 2009 APAP is giving a shout out and much needed accolades to the “top Asian Pacific American progressives” of 2009.

This is a call-out to community leaders, workers, students, college grads, faculty, staff, government officials, Hollywood, the private sector, etc. who are working tirelessly in advancing progressive values and representing our communities. A panel of progressive peers from APAP will serve as reviewers to evaluate your submissions.

If your submission is selected as one of the top 10 progressives of 2009 then they will be featured at the end of the year on Asian Pacific Americans for Progress. Aside from highlighting the dedication of the work being done in the progressive movement by fellow APAs for Progress you’re submission will be eligible for infinite cyber/e-bragging rights.

Deadline for nominations is December 14, 2009, 11:59 PST.
