Listed below are a few recommend readings drawing upon Asian Americans and politics — particularly relevant since there are important elections coming up in November:
- Constante, Agnes. “In California, Asian Americans Find Growing Political Power” (Links to an external site.)
- Leonhardt, David. “Asian Americans, a Sleeping Political Giant” (Links to an external site.)
Read the two articles and compose a 400-500 word reflection discussing your own personal thoughts/opinions. Do not summarize the material. Instead, discuss what you found interesting about these readings. How familiar or knowledgeable are you with either Asian Americans political participation or visibility in current politics? How do these readings fit in with what you may already know or how do they offer new insight, if any?
