This fall AREAA is partnering with the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and other AAPI organizations to host the 2016 APIA Presidential Townhall at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV, on August 12th from 2:00PM PST-4:00PM PST. The event seeks to give each party’s nominee an opportunity to address the myriad issues facing the AAPI community.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will play an ever-increasingly important role in elections, especially in swing states such as Nevada, which can go either Republican or Democrat, and have a large AAPI population. It is more important than ever for politicians to seek and understand the issues affecting our community, and for AAPI to stand up and have their voices heard. Historically the AAPI voter turnout has been low, which is in part due to a lack of coverage of our issues, but also due to our cultural tendency to “not cause a fuss.” That time needs to end. We can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines and allow our needs to be overlooked.

As part of our partnership with AAJA, AREAA has been given 250 spots at the debate for our members. This is a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE registration. The first 250 to register will be the 250 we take. These spots will fill up fast, so if you have any interest in attending please register NOW. With your help, AREAA hopes to show Washington that we deserve to be heard and that we are NO OTHER.
