APIAVote Plans Historic Presidential Town Hall

This from the noble folks at the nonparisan, nonprofit voter advocacy group, (who, incidentally, are currently seeking candidates to fill both internship-level positions and an Executive Director slot -- see the Asian American Village Jobs for Career Center for details.).

Presidential Town Hall
DATE: May 17, 2008
PLACE: Bren Events Center at University of California, Irvine

With the support of various national Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) organizations, we will be expecting 2000 community leaders, elected officials, voters, and students representing this diverse community from across the country to participate at the first National Presidential Town Hall hosted by our Asian American and Pacific Islander community.

Join us for this historic event and learn about the candidates before voting in the general election in November, 2008.

Invitations to each campaign were received and we are working with the campaigns to schedule each candidate's appearance.
