Just got this in for anyone in the Boston area who's interested in attending a forum on Asian Americans' role in politics:


The Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts and The Asian American Center at Northeastern University present:
ASIAN AMERICANS IN POLITICS:
A DISCUSSION WITH OFFICEHOLDERS AND CANDIDATES
Tuesday, June 7, 2005
Northeastern University, McLeod Suites (Curry Student Center)
Reception at 5:00 p.m.; Panel Discussion at 5:30 p.m.


This forum will explore issues facing Asian Pacific American (APA) politicians in a state where APAs comprise one of the fastest-growing populations in many major towns and cities but have yet to elect a statewide representative. The panelists will examine topics such as the significance of an APA identity for elected officials the difficulties of representing a diverse, non-homogenous ethnic group to the impact of demographic trends on political races.
