Ready to hit the pavement and taste the sweat? Because FAPA-YPG wants you for the 2012 Advocacy Conference!
Last year, we saw another successful democratic presidential election in Taiwan. While Taiwan’s democracy remains robust, it has not received the proper international recognition. For 19 years, Taiwan has continuously sought a United Nations membership, yet for 19 years the United Nations has denied the 23 million Taiwanese their proper representation in this league of nations. So on this 20th anniversary of the “UN for Taiwan” movement, let us unite and make our voice heard!
Join us this year to learn the best kept secret of grassroots advocacy. The focus of this year’s conference will be “outreach.” Through outreach activities, you can inform your friends, families, passersby and Congressmen about issues regarding Taiwan. You’ll learn from leading experts why it is critical for Taiwan to have international representation. Then you’ll hear from seasoned FAPA-YPG members share their experience and tips on outreach. Finally you’ll participate in an intense training to learn how to pitch Taiwan. After the conference, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and the skills to continue advocate for Taiwan. Join us for a fun weekend filled with action and wonderful friendship!
