Young Professionals Social
In January 2012, we held our annual Young Professionals' Social, a networking opportunity for our members, residents and new participants to engage in Richmond Hill, Queens. We were also joined by film director Ian Harnarine where we screened his award winning short film "Doubles With Slight Pepper".

Mentoring Culmination Dinner
In November, we celebrated mentoring in South Queens with the graduation of our class of 2012 including mentors, mentees and families in our Youth Leadership Program.
In 2012 we led a major effort to ensure our community is kept together as the State and the City drew political boundaries for various neighborhoods. We worked with a broad network of allies through the Asian American Community Coalition on Redistricting and Democracy "ACCORD".
White House Tour of Richmond Hill
In November, ICA and several of our partner organizations had the honor of hosting the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in "Little Guyana". Many of the Commissioners and heads of agencies were introduced to the Indo-Caribbean community for the first time. The White House AAPI team saw first-hand the largest South Asian community in New York as they toured Liberty Avenue, the education challenges at Richmond Hill High School and numerous religious establishments in our community.
Healthy Relationships Training Academy for Teens
In February, we worked with the Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence on a workshop around dating violence, safe sex and a relationship bill of rights.
