→ Session DescriptionMillennials (18-34) make up about 24% of the United States population. Within this group, many are immigrants or children of immigrants. Imagine the things we could achieve with these numbers. With the recent events in our nation, it is important now more than ever to create a platform for our voices, our Asian American voices. In this session, we will explore the role of AAPIs, specifically Vietnamese Americans, in civic engagement and political activism. Now is the time to embrace our civic duty and take a stand for those who can’t. With the tools and resources provided in this session, we are hopeful that we, collectively, can move the nation forward. Be prepared to discuss, plan, and take action for the betterment of our communities.
