Editor’s Note: Note our other Fellow Maya Ono’s posts as the AAA-Fund sponsored fellow to Nate Shinagawa’s campaign.
Our AAA-Fund Mike Honda Fellow, Teddy Kỳ-Nam Miller, directed the Election Protection team for our Endorsed Candidate Ami Bera. Bera ran in a rematch in Fall 2012 against incumbent Congressman Dan Lungren. Dr. Bera’s district has one of the fastest growing Asian and Hispanic populations in California. AAA-Fund Fellowship enabled Teddy to recruit, train, and deploy a 40-member Election Protection Team that successfully fended off Tea Party challengers at the polls as well as during the extended voter tabulation process. On election night, Dr. Bera’s slim lead of just under 200 votes was a direct result of AAA-Fund’s crucial support in keeping polls accessible for communities of Vietnamese, Hmong, Sikh, Hispanic, Filipino, and dozens of other minority groups. Teddy will attend this Tuesday’s fundraiser to help honor Ami and all our groundbreaking APA leaders. Join Teddy in supporting AAA-Fund’s effort to fund more Mike Honda fellows for the future.
