  • Film Screening & Discussion: “First Vote”

    Join the Democrats Abroad AAPI Caucus for a film screening of First Vote

    After the screening, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the film and also to submit questions for the discussion with the filmmaker, Yi Chen, on November 7th, 2020.

    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.

    Unjust Indigestion

    Unjust Indigestion

    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

    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?
