About the Presidential Town Hall
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should we participate in the Presidential Town Hall?
The Presidential Town Hall will be the largest convergence of over 5,000+ Asian American and Pacific Islander professionals and community leaders in the nation. We will be organizing virtually and it will be held in the afternoon of June 27, 2020. This is a historic moment because, as a collective group, this will be the largest opportunity for the presidential candidates to participate and address our communities’ needs for the General Election. This will also allow our communities to unite our voices in political engagement this year and into the future.
