If you are a Taiwanese national, it is understandable why you care about Taiwan. You still have the opportunity to influence American policy makers by voicing your opinions and fighting for your beloved home country.
If you are Taiwanese American, *Taiwan* is the most solid bond you share with your family members and relatives. It is your responsibility to speak out for what you believe in and bring about a change in outdated policies.
If you do not fit into either of the above categories, your advocacy for Taiwan is just as important because you will make a lasting impression on American lawmakers by showing them that you care about Taiwan as well!
