Building powerful community leaders and advocates

SEARAC is committed to building the power of Southeast Asian American communities to fight for their own self-determination and well-being. We support civically engaged communities anchored by healthy community-based organizations.

LAT & LEAF Training Programs

Since 1999, SEARAC has graduated over 1,000 advocates from 22 states through our annual Leadership & Advocacy Training (LAT). In 2015, we launched the Leadership, Empowerment, & Advocacy Fellowship (LEAF) for advanced community advocates. LAT and LEAF build advocacy leaders for Southeast Asian American communities.
