JOIN A NATIONWIDE CONFERENCE CALL WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA'S BROTHER-IN-LAW AND REPS FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON MAY 31, 4-6 PM EST
On May 31st, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress is hosting a nation-wide conference call with Konrad Ng, the Chinese American brother-in-law of President Obama. It will be a great chance to hear from someone so close to the President and to learn how the President might approach our community. The call will also feature a list of high-profile Asian Americans in the Obama Administration, including Asst. Secretary for Veteran Affairs Tammy Duckworth, Executive Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Tina Tchen and Director of Social Innovation and Civic Participation Sonal Shah.
All the details are on our website (apaforprogress.org), but basically it would be gathering a few friends, family members and/or co-workers together and then calling in and listening to the speakers. (You can serve light snacks or make it a potluck.) After the call, you can have a group discussion on the issues you think matter, not just on a national level, but also locally. We'll then record these thoughts and share them with the Obama administration. It will be a chance to have our collective voice heard.
