IAAA Chicago Concert and Night Market
Oct 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On October 16, 2016, #IAAA aims to register at least 15,000 new voters with a first-ever national concert event taking place in four cities with major Asian American populations: New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
To help close this gap in a critical election year, #IAmAsianAmerican (www.iamasianamerican.com) — a new organization formed in conjunction with Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) (www.apiavote.org), Kollaboration (www.kollaboration.org) and 18 Million Rising (18MR.org) — is launching a national campaign to engage Asian American millennials to become active participants in the electoral process.
