Join the Democrats Abroad AAPI Caucus for a film screening of First Vote.
In a newly released documentary, First Vote, Yi Chen follows a cross section of politically engaged Chinese American voters, all first-time voters, during the 2018 midterm elections. This includes a variety of voters: A gun-toting Tea Party-favorite candidate courting GOP votes in the South; a podcaster in Ohio who became a citizen in order to vote for Trump; a progressive journalist confronting Chinese Americans for Trump after moving to a battleground state from Beijing; and a University of North Carolina professor teaching about race and racism in the U.S.
Our goal is to bring awareness to the political influence of the AAPI community and discuss ways to improve voter outreach. Please help us cover the costs of the film license ($202) by making a donation to Democrats Abroad.

Her death could have been avoided
If someone had listened to her cries
Someone left their trainers on the porch
Then muddied the house mat
They called their names in villages
And marches around the world
But the circus revolves
And the clowns keep prancing
The videos of despair continue
But weariness has sluggishly settled in
While pessimism weaves pathways
Behind the invasion of frolicking trolls
The choices are paltry
But the steps need taking
For when the mockingbird sings
Scavenger crows return home to rest
For when need is stronger than desire
And torment incites lingering disgust
Then the time for fall sowing
Comes before the spring reaping
While the chants are still being sung
With self-righteous fervor
Yet, the rhythm must be woven anew
To still the tide of pending disaster

In the Fall of Corona
If you have three apples
And I have none
Wouldn’t it be fair
To give me one?
If you have a house
And mine is gone
Would you sit and ponder
Where the fire came from?
If my husband was killed
And yours still lives
Is there some support
That you could give?
If my land was in war
And I had to run away
Would you give me space
a safe place to stay?
If my child lies crying
face down on the ground
four police on his neck
no justice to be found
Well, what should I do?
What if we changed places
And you were me
And I was you?
