Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein will join former President Bill Clinton on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Secretary Hillary Clinton, and Libertarian presidential nominee Governor Gary Johnson to address the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) national community on August 12, 2016, at a historic AAPI Presidential Election Forum in Las Vegas.
In addition, discussions are in final stages with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign.
This quad-partisan AAPI Presidential Election Forum is presented by the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote).
Upwards of 4,000 leaders from business, real estate, journalism, health care, law, faith, and more, are expected to be inside The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for the Presidential Election Forum. More than 40 organizations are holding conferences, seminars, and symposiums to discuss issues relevant to their industries, professions, and communities.
In addition, more than 50 AAPI community Watch Parties will be held across the country, joining this historic event in real-time.
At the Forum, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) led by Rep. Judy Chu, Rep Mike Honda, and other members of Congress will have a special message on how AAPI voters actually can swing this year’s election outcome as they have in the past two cycles.
Doors open at 1:00 p.m. PST. Press credentials will NOT provide access to candidates, candidate arrivals, or allow for any filming or photography at the event or on Caesars property.
