You may know or have met Jeff before as he has spoken at various NAPABA conventions and regional conferences
the past several years - Jeff was the founder of the now-defunct "A Magazine", which at one time, was the largest
Asian American publication in the United States (based on circulation numbers of about 200,000)
and now writes the "Tao Jones" column for the Wall Street Journal.  He is also the proud father of Hudson Yang,
who plays Eddie Huang, in the show.Anyways, Jeff has arranged for not just the pilot episode but also the second episode to be screened at the viewing party.  


Free event with a cash bar and a Q&A session after, featuring Jeff, Hudson and special guests.
Erin Quill (original cast, AVENUE Q), Greg Pak (writer, BATMAN/SUPERMAN; STORM),
Richard Lui (anchor, MSNBC) and others.  All are invited and welcome!

AALDEF & the Asian American Vote


On November 4, 2014, over 580 AALDEF volunteers surveyed 4,102 Asian American voters, in 11 Asian languages,
at 64 poll sites in 38 cities in 11 states – Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey,

New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia – and Washington, DC about their voting encounters in the nation’s largest

nonpartisan multilingual exit poll.  The exit poll reveals vital information about Asian American voting patterns that is

often overlooked in mainstream voter surveys. 

At these presentations, comparative information will be given about the Asian American vote in the
Gubernatorial and Congressional elections, concerns about key issues, first-time voters,

and profiles of the Asian American vote by ethnicity, nativity, party enrollment, age, and English proficiency.
