PaKou Her is Campaign Director at 18MillionRising, an unprecedented Asian American Pacific Islander online organizing and civic engagement organization that leverages technology and social media to build power and community. Prior to her role at 18MR, she spent 15 years as an antiracism organizer, followed by nearly two years as a field organizer with MoveOn.org. She is also principal of Tseng Development Group, a firm that provides consulting, training, and coaching on antiracist/anti-oppressive leadership development, organizational growth, and systems change. Born and raised in the Midwest, PaKou takes great pride reppin APIs living in the nation’s midsection. Some of her favorite non-campaigning activities include entertaining two young daughters, squeezing in occasional adult-only evenings with her spouse, chasing culinary adventures, and dreaming about reviving a long-lost singing career.
