The Tri-Valley Chapter hosted its summer interns at a mixer in San Ramon on July 23, which included local elected leaders and a group from APAPA headquarters in Sacramento.

The 10 interns are working in various offices including California State Treasurer Fiona Ma, State Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, Alameda County Supervisor David Haubert, California Fair Political Practices Commission, among other placements.

The students shared the projects they are working on as part of their internships. One student is looking into the training of school police officers and the need for implicit bias training. Another student is researching a legislative bill aimed at equity in lending practices, including grants to support minority-owned businesses.

All of Tri-Valley’s interns are high school students.

APAPA CEO Sharon Ito told the interns she hopes they stay with APAPA as they grow up. She told them they are learning leadership and communication skills and how to bring about change in their community. Sharon called them a new generation of leaders and joined all of us in saying we are proud of them.

The occasion also turned into a “pinning ceremony” with each intern receiving an APAPA pin, a yellow whistle, an APAPA Unity face mask, and fan.

Thank you to the team for APAPA HQ who made the 80-mile drive from Sacramento to San Ramon. In addition to Sharon, the group included National Executive Director Henry Chang, Operations Director Jason Jong, and Chapter Development Chair Kevin Phan.
