Forum encourages Asian American vote

Encouraging Asian Americans to exercise their rights through the voting process is the goal of “Empowering Asian Americans: Making Democracy Work for Us.” The forum will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, at California State University, Sacramento in the University Theatre in Shasta Hall. The free event is open to the public.

The non-partisan, educational forum features U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer and a panel of Sacramento’s elected officials. The discussion will focus on getting first- and second-generation Asian Americans involved in the political process and participating in the 2004 elections.

The forum is hosted by the CSUS ethnic studies department and the Chinese American Political Action Committee and is sponsored by numerous grassroots Asian American community organizations.

For more information, contact Ivy Lee at (916) 486-8934. For media assistance, contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
