"I was frustrated with this system we’ve created for ourselves where people on both sides of the aisle don’t really trust their elected officials, and I don’t think that has to be the case. If we elect trustworthy people, then the public starts to restore their trust in the government, and we can start to enact policies that can really have a big impact across large groups of people."

-- Rui Xu for Kansas - 25th House District

"I am running for public office to change up the story. I’m running because I want to be an example to other women and people of color who have assumed that they don’t have the power to make the kinds of changes they know our culture and society need. I’m running because I want you to see people like me doing brave things and striving to improve the world, and because I hope that you will find a way to write that into your own stories, whatever they might look like."

-- Tram T Nguyen, Candidate for Massachusetts State Representative, 18th Essex District

Cambodian Rock Band is a mesmerizing show featuring powerhouse performances by all of its cast. It is among the best that I’ve seen emerge from the Asian American art and performance scene. Whether you are familiar with stories of the Khmer Rouge regime, or whether you are learning about it for the first time, Cambodian Rock Band offers a unique, politically intricate, and emotionally captivating lens on that period in history that is an absolute must-see before the final performance of its world premiere run this weekend.

BY GUEST CONTRIBUTOR: Sung Yeon Choimorrow, Executive Director, +NAPAWF

“When AAPI women and women in general are confronted with false choices – or, even worse, not given agency over the conditions under which we become parents – the outcome can be devastating. Allowing fake health centers to spread their misinformation in our communities does real harm to low-income communities and women of color by reducing a woman’s chance at having honest conversations about her reproductive decisions.”

Takei posted on Facebook a statement addressing his comments to Stern. In it, Takei blames his statements on a “naughty gay grandpa” persona he says he adopted while appearing on Stern’s show. Now, where have we heard the “I was only jokingly pretending to be an asshole when I said that asshole thing” defense before?

As part of the Trump administration’s pattern of holding refugees’ and immigrants’ lives hostage in service of Trump’s xenophobic and anti-immigrant policies, ICE has rounded up over one hundred Cambodian American refugees and placed them in detainment to face deportation.

Authorities have not released a motive for any possible murder-suicide. Currently, it seems possible that the couple — who were not described as experienced hikers — may have chosen to enter into a murder-suicide pact after having gotten lost in the park and running out of food and water.

CW: Sexual Abuse, #MeToo

"When I look into my daughter’s eyes, I hope for a better life for them. I cuddle them as they sleep. I count each eyelash as a wish that they will never have to experience sexual abuse. I want their childhood to be everything mine was not."
