About FAPA YPG
The Formosan Association for Public Affairs Young Professional Group promotes international recognition of Taiwan’s right to peace, democracy, and self-determination through education and advocacy.
At the moment, Taiwan is facing an international crisis. China has more than 1600 ballistic missiles aimed at this beautiful island in an effort to intimidate its 23 million citizens, who live in a peaceful and democratic society.
The international community, lured by China’s economic opportunity and cowed by its ever-growing military, has warned Taiwan not to “provoke” its belligerent neighbor. Taiwan is barred from memberhood in international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization—all because of China’s unjust interference.
We believe that lasting peace can be earned in only one way: by supporting democracy and freedom for all people. Sacrificing the rights of 23 million Taiwanese to China’s immoral ambitions is not the answer.Therefore, we urge you to support a nation who has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to peace and democracy—We urge you to join us to support our nation, Taiwan.
Committed to investing in our future generations, FAPA will cover 2 nights of lodging (except for those who live in the Washington DC metropolitan area) and 4 meals during the Conference. The only requirement is for you to take part in Monday’s visit to Capitol Hill.
There is a program fee of $60. You can also choose to become a FAPA member by paying the annual membership dues ($50 for single members, and $70 for couples), and waive the program fee!
