Come learn and discuss how to effectively advocate for Taiwan. Starting can be as simple as telling the people you meet how good Taiwanese food is! Learn the ABCs of both grassroots advocacy and how to express yourself effectively to Members of Congress. You will also gain knowledge on issues relevant to the Taiwan-U.S.-China triangular relationship, including some of the history and politics that affect current cross-strait relations. Don’t miss the chance to network with other supporters, and discuss how to protect the Taiwanese right to self-determination as laid out in the United Nations Charter on Human Rights.

Sign up by Sunday May 15 to reserve one of the limited 50 seats available. Taiwanese-style lunch box included. This workshop is free of charge. Take this opportunity to make a difference for Taiwan.
