Come to hear how the Post-Election Survey of Asian American and Pacific Islander Voters in 2012 provides the broader national context in illustrating the importance of Asian Americans to the political process and to policy debates. The growing presence and engagement of older Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities on the coasts, and the rapidly growing AAPI communities in the Midwest and South reflect the energy and opportunity we see in our own state.

The critical questions we address in this briefing are:

What is the Asian American agenda ahead in TX?

And how will Asian Americans leverage their growing political power to effect legislation and representation on the local, state and federal level?

In presenting about local and national voting trends, we will talk about how and why Asian Americans vote. Importantly, we will address how Asian Americans can take the significance of the data and translate it into education and action to impact the future of Asian American communities.

SPEAKERS:

Mee Moua is the president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC. Founded in 1991, Advancing Justice | AAJC is one of the nation’s premier civil rights advocacy organizations and works to advance the human and civil rights of Asian Americans, and build and promote a fair and equitable society for all. Most recently, Ms. Moua was a three-term Minnesota State Senator, where she chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, and had oversight responsibility for all state agencies in matter related to criminal, civil and administrative law and procedures. Ms. Moua started her legal career in private practice in Minnesota. Born in Laos, Ms. Moua immigrated to the U.S. in 1978. She attended Brown University as an undergraduate, earned a master’s degree in public affairs from the University of Texas-Austin, and a law degree from the University of Minnesota.

Christine Chen, is the Executive Director of APIAVote. In addition she serves as President of Strategic Alliances USA, a consulting firm specializing in coalition building, institutional development, and partnerships among the corporate sector, government agencies, and the nonprofit and public sector. Profiled by Newsweek magazine in 2001 as one of 15 women who will shape America’s new century, Chen served from 2001 to 2005 as national executive director of the OCA National Center, one of the leading APIA civil rights organizations in the country. Chen is well-known by activists across the county. Her track record in building coalitions and working at the grassroots and national levels established her as one of the strongest voices in the APIA community. She has more than a decade of experience in organizing and advocating on issues such as immigration, hate crimes, affirmative action, census, racial profiling, voting rights, election reform, and various derogatory and racist media incidents. Her role as a trusted coalition builder has her effectively building relationships with key Congressional offices including the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, federal agencies, and the administration. Chen currently serves on the Kennedy Center Community Advisory Board, Center for Asian American Media, OCA Northern Virginia Chapter, and the advisory boards for the Asian Pacific American Medical Students Association (APAMSA), and CAPAL.
