FAPA empowers Taiwanese Americans and Taiwan supporters across all ages, religions, and political parties to engage in building relationships with Congress members from both sides to promote U.S.-Taiwan relationship. Our work is made possible because of the 45 chapters we have throughout the U.S. along with 2500 of our dedicated memberships and their determination to strengthen the U.S-Taiwan relations.
FAPA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and we do not fund raise for or endorse candidates or elected officials. However, we do encourage FAPA members to be politically active and regularly attend local town halls and events with their members of Congress to relay them the message of U.S.-Taiwan relations.
FAPA is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and builds support of issues by working with Congress to pass resolutions or bills on support of the Taiwan issue. FAPA currently has no offices outside of Washington, but seeks to grow into having a vibrant network of offices in different regions in the future.
FAPA also has annual programs that educate young Taiwanese professionals and student activists on current U.S.-Taiwan relations, as well as lobbying strategies and how the U.S. Congress works. It is also through programs like these where we develop the next generation of Taiwanese leaders in U.S.-Taiwan affairs.
