Media Teleconference, Thursday, October 13, 2016, 12PM ET

WASHINGTON, D.C.— As the recent “Chinatown” segment that aired on Fox News shows us, stereotypes and racism continue to persist about Asian Americans, along with the idea that our communities are invisible or lack political knowledge. However, we know this is not true—AANPHIs have clear policy preferences and beliefs. The number of AANHPI registered voters will more than double by 2040, and AANPHIs will be a political force that will impact this election, emphasizing the importance of amplifying issues important to our communities.
Join the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA), a coalition of 35 national AANHPI organizations, in a press call for its newly-released Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Policy Platform to outline opportunities to strengthen the AANHPI community and highlight often underreported issues that matter to our communities. RSVP to join.

Christopher Kang, National Director, National Council of Asian Pacific Americans
Representative Judy Chu (CA-27)
Christine Chen, Executive Director, Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote
Other speakers to be announced

What: Leaders within the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANPHI) community discuss policy priorities and issues important to the fastest-growing electorate outlined in the newly-released 2016 AANPHI Policy Platform.

When: Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016 at 12 PM ET / 9 AM PT
