Mimi Ho works with the Movement Strategy Center. She has served as a trainer and consultant with racial justice and immigrant rights groups on community and electoral organizing strategy, grassroots leadership development, organizational development, and fundraising. Her clients have included Western States Center and the Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco). She also ran Mobilize the Immigrant Vote’s pilot training program and co-authored The Accidental Fundraiser, a book on grassroots fundraising, with Stephanie Roth.
Mimi Ho was the statewide field director and co-director of Californians for Justice (CFJ) during electoral fights against several racist ballot initiatives in the 1990s — attacks on affirmative action, bilingual education, youth, labor, and gay marriage. During the No on 209 (anti-affirmative action) campaign she oversaw field work in 13 field offices and 1,350 precincts across California. She led CFJ in introducing public jobs legislation in the California legislature. Mimi was a coordinator for national health care campaign work at the Northwest Federation of Community Organizations (now the Alliance for a Just Society), and provided organizing, legislative and communications training, campaign strategy consultation, and in-the-field capacity building for statewide affiliates in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
Recently, Mimi worked with the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) where she supported campaigns to organize Chinese electronic workers and to keep Chevron from expanding to dirtier crude in Richmond, CA. She helped grow APEN’s cutting edge Asian Pacific American electoral operation and support APEN’s shift into statewide policy and organizing work.
