The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County (www.apabala.org) is again presenting a panel discussion as our Sixth Annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event. The topic this year is “The Next Sleeping Giant: Is There An Emerging Asian Pacific American Swing Vote?”
The event happens Wednesday, May 14, from 7 to 9 p.m. (registration from 6:15 p.m.) at the ImaginAsian Center on 251 South Main Street (near Little Tokyo), Los Angeles.
With the presidential campaign in full swing and the largest voter turnout in recent memory, where do APA voters stand? Are there identifiable voting trends? Are APAs the newest “swing vote”? Panelists include: Dan Ichinose (APALC, Director of Demographic Research Project); Kam Kuwata (Political Consultant); Courtni Sunjoo Pugh (Assistant Area Director for SEIU and former Deputy Political Director for the Edwards presidential campaign (invited)); Prof. Raphael Sonenshein, (CSUF, expert on political coalition building and author of Politics in Black and White: Race and Power in Los Angeles); and Ted Chen, (KNBC), as moderator.
