Grassroots Advocacy

Grassroots Advocacy

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we do not fundraise for or endorse candidates or elected officials. 
However, we 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.

Align with American Interests

Align with American Interests

FAPA sees support for democratization in Taiwan as beneficial to American interests, since a more open society on Taiwan will help foster safety, security and peace in the Pacific Basin. The 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, which serves as the cornerstone of US-Taiwan relations, reads: “It is the policy of the United States– to consider any effort to determine the future of Taiwan by other than peaceful means […] of grave concern to the United States.”
