IAAA Chicago Concert and Night Market

Oct 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The #IAmAsianAmerican movement is coming to Chicago! We are going to throw one of the most epic red carpet celebrity concert and after party night market. And the best part? You’re invited!

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.
