The Initiative cordially invites students, youth, and community advocates across the country to attend its first ever Virtual Youth Town Hall. The online event will be available for viewing at

During the Virtual Town Hall, the White House Initiative will explore increasingly important issues relevant to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth. YouTube personality Ryan Higa, singer and songwriter Clara Chung are among the prominent AAPI role models that will serve as Town Hall panelists and address issues such as bullying, access to education, and AAPI representation in the arts and media. The Town Hall will be moderated by Sefa Aina, Vice Chair of the President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs.

The Virtual Town Hall will be live-streamed, and will include a question and answer session in which the community can submit their questions online. Questions and comments can be submitted before and during the town hall event via Twitter using the hashtag #WHIAAPITownHall. The Virtual Town Hall will be hosted in front of a live audience of youth in Las Vegas, Nevada, where a limited number of participants can attend and share their own stories.
