Rushing to Judgement

Yup, we’re pissed about Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation. We ended up with an aggressively conservative Supreme Court with a 6-3 supermajority that doesn't reflect the political makeup of this country and was appointed by a president who lost the popular vote. This is minority rule. But, Supreme Court headlines aside, many of us don’t really understand the court systems leading up to the highest court in the land. According to Ballotpedia, there are a total of 278 state appellate court seats up for election in 2020. What does that even mean? It’s too bad Law and Order didn't prepare us well enough.

Untangling Undocumented

In this episode of #FOTV,  Grace hosts a roundtable with a Race and Ethnic Studies graduate student and two undocumented immigrants. They examine lived experiences to see how race and law work together to erase Asian Americans from the undocumented narrative. Complicating and untangling the notion of "legal immigration", they ask the audience members to find local ways to listen to immigrant stories in their own zip codes and act as co-conspirators - more than allies.

Rise & Shine, Hot Planet Coming Through

In the latest VP debate, Pence admitted the climate is changing without addressing the urgency of the climate crisis we are living in. This episode is a Green New Deal 101 featuring candidates working at the state, city, and ground level to bring attention to our politicians on the climate crisis. 

Michelle Wu (running for Boston mayor), Alex Lee (running for California Assembly District 25), Megan Nguyen (Sunrise Movement Bay Area Hub Leader), and a friend of the podcast, Leslie Chang (consultant at Planet Earth Observatory) join #FOTV for what the Green New Deal could look like at different levels of our government, but also how to approach the solution in an equitable way that considers all communities.

SO, WHO ARE WE?

We’re a bunch of random Asians on a shaky Zoom call predicting how a hot mess will go down on November 3rd. 

 

2020 turned out to be wild. We'll be voting in our pajamas given instructions from the government.

 

That’s like handing our future over to Internet Explorer - super outdated and weird. 

Unlike your white-dude-eighth-grade-U.S.-history teacher, we’re actually relatable. We’re connecting with the academic experts so you get their side of the story. Politics is about personal and family history too. It can unite or divide us. But the important thing is we keep the conversation real. On Instagram, we’ll give you tl;drs on hot news in the AAPI world and break down the voting process along the way.

 

We’d love for you to tune in while playing Animal Crossing and before your virtual date. 

 

You can thank us later when you score a second date on CMB by breaking the ice with the in’s and out’s of your local Election board’s absentee ballot policies.
