8Asians at the Democratic National Convention 2016 in Philadelphia, Day 1


I had such a good time four years ago at the Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina in September 2012 (my blog posts):

I decided if I could at a reasonable cost covered on my own dime, on my own vacation time, I’d attend the convention again. Well, I made it to Philadelphia again and have attended numerous events, which I’ll follow-up on more. But here’s a sample from:

Day 1 – Monday, July 25th:

California Delegates Breakfast


Where I got to see California State Treasurer John Chiang speak, among other elected Californian Asian Americans.

AAPI Caucus


Which included Congressman Mike Honda and Congresswoman Judy Chu (both from California).

APIAVote Briefing & Reception


And at the reception, got to see:


Fresh Off the Boat’s Constance Wu speak about her interest and involvement in politics.

And that was only during the first day! More to come!

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
