Join NAPAWF*New York City and the Museum of Chinese in America(MOCA) for the fifth and final installment of our series, Asian American Feminism x Politics, to hear from Asian American elected officials on their experiences serving the community, practicing Asian American feminism, and navigating local, state, and national politics. The final installment brings together previous conversations on movement building in the Trump Era to think through material justice in the arena of legislative politics.

Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou, Councilmember Margaret S. Chin, Councilmember Jannie Chung of Closter, NJ, and Program Associate of The New American Leaders Project Marian Guerra will discuss the work of their respective offices and how Asian American feminism shapes and informs their issue areas such as immigrant and refugee rights, affordable housing, domestic violence, surveillance and police violence, and workers’ rights. Speakers will also discuss their experiences campaigning, legislating, and doing community-based work.
