Another Perspective for Taiwanese America: Ensuring Taiwan’s Security 另外一個角度給台美人:保證臺灣的安全 If you asked me to put money down on whether or not Donald Trump could point Taiwan out on a map, I would say you are out of your mind. However, if you asked me whether or not the Trump presidency has been good for Taiwan, I would be lying if I said it has not. To be clear, I am not talking about what might be better for the United States; I am strictly talking in…

Taiwanese Americans: Help Report Anti-AAPI Discrimination

Taiwanese American.org

  Originally published March 2, 2020   I will clarify again that legitimate calls for CCP accountability are NOT at odds with real solutions addressing anti-Asian violence. As a #TaiwaneseAmerican passionate about the nuances of #AsianAmerica, I believe in discourse that is thoughtful enough to be specific. (LC 1/2)

My Signature Represents Me: Writing in ‘Taiwanese’ on the United States Census

Taiwanese American.org

My name is Christina Hu, and I am a Taiwanese American.
In 2019, I signed on to lead the Write In Taiwanese campaign for the 2020 Census [on behalf of] the Taiwanese American Citizens League.
The pandemic had changed many of our pre planned events, but I have never felt more committed to the goals I had set for the Write In Taiwanese campaign-
1. We care that everyone gets counted, and
2. We care that everyone knows that they can write-in under “Other” categories if they are not represented…

Remembrance & Resources: Learning About 228

Taiwanese American.org

By Joyce Chen & Leona Chen |
74 years have elapsed since the 1947 February 28 Massacre in Taiwan, when building resentment over inflation, constant military occupation, and police brutality culminated in an island-wide protest. When local Taiwanese leaders demanded administration reforms, free elections, and accountability for government corruption, the Chinese Nationalist army began a violent campaign to impose martial law, executing teachers, students, and commercial leaders. An estimated…

https://twitter.com/TaiwaneseAm_org/status/1269718346460614656 Taiwanese American yuppies, we’ve got some work to do. This is a long-overdue reckoning. A conversation is not a solution, but a critical place to start. And we believe that showing up imperfectly - with our unsure language, blind spots, and all - is better than not showing up at all.  I thought a lot about the role of Taiwanese Americans in civic society when…

On Clubhouse, ‘臺kanda’: Taiwan’s Wakanda Fantasies

Taiwanese American.org

Are semiconductors Taiwan's vibranium? "Actually," offers one speaker, "it's the Taiwanese people's ethics and heart." Aw.
There's a scene in the Marvel franchise where T'challa disrupts the meta-fiction of Wakanda's unremarkable, third-world pretense, grandly revealing their true nature in a gesture of humanitarian aid. That both Wakanda and Taiwan can be categorized as global fictions is sad. But, crucially, there is a difference between hiding and being ignored. [caption id="" align="alignnone"…

Taiwanese American Community Response to Pew Research Reports on Asian American Communities IMAGE SOURCE: PEW RESEARCH CENTER
Recently published reports by the Pew Research Center analyzing Asian American communities have included footnotes that data for “‘Chinese’ includes those identifying as ‘Taiwanese.’” As of today (May 1 - the start of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month), the methodology for Pew Research Center’s Asian American fact sheets makes no reference to why…

An Open Letter to the Taiwanese American Community: Securing Taiwan’s Democracy 給台美人的一封公開信:守護台灣民主 A strong United States is crucial for a more secure and democratic Taiwan. Contrary to popular perception among the first generation in the Taiwanese American community, the Trump administration has weakened the United States’ economic, diplomatic, and moral standing in the world. This is detrimental to Taiwan’s long-term security and democracy. The authoritarian…
