APANO and APANO Communities United Fund unite Asians and Pacific Islanders to build power, develop leaders, and advance equity through organizing, advocacy, community development, and cultural work. We envision a just world where Asians and Pacific Islanders and communities who share our aspirations and struggles have the power, resources, and voice to determine our own futures, and where we work in solidarity to drive political, social, economic, and cultural change. APANO’s key programs include community development, cultural work, policy advocacy, civic engagement, and youth organizing. APANO has a 501(c)(3) organization called APANO Communities United Fund (CUF) and works closely with its affiliate 501(c)(4) organization, APANO.
The Communications Manager will manage and execute APANO’s communications strategy and initiatives to uplift the organization’s mission and advance its programs. The Communications Manager will work closely with the Development and Communications Director to set communications policy and strategy, and manage the day-to-day functions of the Communications Team, including Communications Coordinators and/or Associates and other collaborators. Together with the team, they will develop values-aligned, relevant content to position APANO as a credible, influential voice on the issues we work on, advance APANO’s mission and programs, and engage our core audiences.
