Thank you for subscribing to this inaugural issue of LAAUNCH Report, an update on what we've been up to at LAAUNCH to engage and empower Asian Americans to fight racism, increase representation, and elevate our community going forward.
Our first initiative, working with APIAVote.org to get out the vote for the 2020 Presidential Election, we engaged several popular influencers, including Jeremy Lin, Connie Chung, and Hudson Yang who helped turn out a record number of Asian American and Pacific Islander ("AAPI") voters in this historic election. Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who will be the first Asian American, first Black, and first woman Vice President in US history.
In this LAAUNCH Report, please find a summary of our campaign with APIAVote as well as a curated list of some recent articles on Asian American issues.
According to the Chinese proverb, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step," and we, at LAAUNCH, look forward to sharing this journey with you. Share your ideas and suggestions on how we can positively impact the Asian American community and we invite you to get involved as a volunteer, advisor, donor, etc.
Please follow us on our social media accounts, and share our posts and this newsletter with your friends. Together, we can make a difference!
Wishing you and your family a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.
The LAAUNCH Team
