New York, NY (PRWEB) October 06, 2016
October 6, 2016 (Los Angeles) - #IAmAsianAmerican, an Asian-American get out the vote movement, in partnership with the National Asian Panhellenic Association (NAPA) and over 30 national AAPI organizations, is mobilizing Asian-American millennial voters to respond to the recent Bill O’Reilly FOX News video which drew strong criticism from the Asian American community.
In the call to action, #IAmAsianAmerican is asking millennials to speak up and let the world know what Asian American voters really think in their own words. Participants can go to http://www.iamasianamerican.com/psa to view sample videos and print out placards to create their own selfie video to post on social media with the tag #IAmAsianAmerican.
NAPA, with more than 512 undergraduate chapters, had already been active with the #IAmAsianAmerican voter registration drives and felt compelled to take part in the PSA campaign in response to the Fox News coverage. “We want to do our part to get out the real voices of Asian American millennials. As part of one of the largest Asian American student organization, it is more important than ever that we take control of the narrative, ” said NAPA Vice Chair, Vigor Lam.
#IAmAsianAmerican is a national campaign to engage Asian American millennials to become active participants in the electoral process. On October 16, 2016, #IAAA aims to register at least 15,000 new voters with a first-ever national concert event taking place in four cities with major Asian American populations:New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
