On May 31st, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (apaforprogress.org), the national network of progressive Asian Americans and allies, 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.
All the details are on apaforprogress.org. Basically, it can just be a dozen friends or so, gathering for a potluck and then calling in and listening to Konrad. There'll also beanother guest or two. After the call, parties can all talk about the issues they think matter, not just on a national level, but also locally. APA for Progress will then record all these thoughts and share them with the Obama administration. It will be a chance to have our collective voice heard.
It would be great to have some health discussions concerning our community that we can submit to the Administration.
