Grace is an advocate for communities of color, young people and women.   This conversation will not only offer a chance to discuss politics, but will also be a special moment to discuss the relationship between politics and being Asian-American. This event will also offer a space to discuss political agency within Asian-American communities, and Grace will share with the audience her unique personal experiences and perspectives she has learned throughout her journey in politics.
