Preparing for the 2020 Presidential Primaries  & General Election

Congressmen Ted Lieu, Judy Chu, and Grace Meng each gave a speech regarding their thoughts on the upcoming election at the 2018 Asian American Leadership Summit on September 6th. Ted Lieu believes that voting in the upcoming elections is important because it would bring back the core value systems that were previously held. Congresswoman Judy Chu added that voting gives the government a better idea of the public’s opinion. Thus, in order to create changes on a government level, everyone’s vote matters.
Prior to the Congressmen presenting their thoughts, panelists for the discussion involving increasing voter registration represented organizations from around the United States. Methods currently in use include first time voters being able to physically go to a registration office, which is one of the benefits for college students who don’t live at home, as well as utilizing that same demographic to bring in more people to vote.

Asian USA 2018 Leadership Summit in Washington DC

There is an African proverb that goes “If you want to go fast, fly alone. If you want to go far, fly together.” CLUSA founder and chairman, Mr. Sandy Chau, referenced this quote during his opening speech at this year’s Asian USA 2018: Asian American & Pacific Islander Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. With 6% of American being Asians, he emphasized the importance of being able to unite the Asian communities around the US in order to create a bigger impact. If one Asian community is one bird, then many birds flying far would be the equivalent of multiple Asian communities uniting for a common purpose. ” Asians have a lot of contributions to this country but haven’t gotten recognition. Many Asian people work so hard but haven’t gotten equal opportunities. That’s why we should work together and make some changes.”
Following Mr. Chau with her own opening speech was the CEO, Sue Van, from Wallace H. Coulter Foundation. She also emphasized the importance of representation, especially in office. Over the last few elections, there has been an increasing in the number of AAPI in public office, specifically the House of Representatives and the Senate. By increasing the level of civic engagement within communities, more AAPI will be inclined to run for office and not only add to the current number of AAPI in office, but will maintain that representation when the current members step down from offices.
When people hear the term DNA, they tend to think of the genetic term. To Karthick Ramakrishnan, professor of public policy and political science at UC Riverside as well as the founder of AAPIData, DNA refers to Data (and technology), Narrative, and Action (ex. advocacy and civic engagement). To be successful in anything, one needs to apply all three into their plan to be successful.
