2018 is already becoming a remarkable year for civic engagement, political participation, and new kinds of candidates. This explosion of engagement runs wide, and immigrant communities are jumping in. Sayu Bhojwani, Founder and President of New American Leaders, is at the center of this exciting trend.
You're invited to join Sayu Bhojwani in conversation about creating a more inclusive democracy through increased civic engagement. Miles Rapoport, Senior Practice Fellow in American Democracy, will moderate.

She served as New York City’s first Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs and is the founder of South Asian Youth Action, a community-based organization in Queens. Dr. Bhojwani is a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow and the author of People Like Us: The New Wave of Candidates Knocking at Democracy’s Door, to be published in October 2018.
