CLICK THE IMAGE TO REGISTER!

Today, we are excited to open registration for our fourth Presidential Town Hall on June 27th.

The event will feature the Biden and Trump campaigns and will center around how these candidates will address important issues such as healthcare, education, the economy, and gun control, to the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community.

Unlike years past, the event will be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. To register, visit apiavote.org/townhall.

Since 2008, the Presidential Town Hall has served as a forum for AAPIs to push for AAPI issues to be addressed and on the radar of campaigns and the media. In giving presidential candidates a space to directly address AAPI community members, leaders, and organizers, the town hall has become one of the few spaces geared specifically for candidates to speak directly to AAPIs, about AAPIs.

The event will be part of a larger summit, with four-days worth of programming before the town hall beginning on June 22nd and another five days of programming after. The summit will feature multiple interest tracks for participants.
