In celebration of the two-year anniversary of the signing of the Executive Order that reestablished the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, the Initiative cordially invites students, youth, and community advocates across the country to attend its first ever Virtual Youth Town Hall on October 14, 2011 from 4pm to 5:30pm PDT.
During the Virtual Town Hall, the White House Initiative will explore increasingly important issues relevant to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth. Singer/songwriter Clara Chung and YouTube personality Ryan Higa are among the prominent AAPI role models that will serve as Town Hall panelists and address issues such as anti-bullying, access to education, and AAPI representation in the arts and media. The Town Hall will be moderated by Sefa Aina, Vice Chair of the President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs.
The Virtual Town Hall will be live-streamed, and will include a question and answer session in which the community can submit their questions online. Questions and comments can be submitted before and during the town hall event via Twitter using the hashtag #AAPITownHall. The Virtual Town Hall will also be hosted in front of a live audience of youth in Las Vegas, Nevada, where a limited number of participants can attend and share their own stories.
