Come join the Formosan Association for Public Affairs – Young Professionals Group (FAPA-YPG) in NY/NJ and hear special guest, Eric Chang, share his passion for the democracy of Taiwan! Eric Chang is an inspiring 2nd generation Taiwanese American who has traveled to Taiwan in search of his roots while pursuing his PhD in Taiwan. His dedication for standing up and speaking out for the social injustice and corruption in Taiwan as an “ABT” has garnered him a large following on the island nation.
In an interview with FTV, a famous clip in YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRhQCKdvXFs), he says, “Young people in Taiwan have to stand up and fight for your rights. Taiwan is now a relatively democratic country, but have YOU thought about why it is so democratic? And how much sacrifice was made?”
His willingness to speak up and fight for the rights of Taiwanese people and Taiwan can be witnessed by one of his many famous demonstration of PRC officials who refuses to recognize Taiwan’s independence and continues to set foot in Taiwan.

Although Eric is just one of many Taiwanese Americans in Taiwan presently, his action and his unwavering pursuit of equality, justice, liberty and full democracy in Taiwan will continue to to inspire and garner support from young Taiwanese in Taiwan and many more who care about the future of this island nation.”
