2016_DNC_John_8Asians

I had such a good time four years at the Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina in September 2012 (my blog posts):

  • My 2012 Democratic National Convention Experience (Video – 6:08 minutes)
  • My 2012 Democratic National Convention Experience – Day 1
  • My 2012 Democratic National Convention Experience – Day 2
  • My 2012 Democratic National Convention Experience – Day 3
  • 8Asians At The DNC: Asian American & Pacific Islander Delegates Meet and Greet
  • 8Asians At The Democratic National Convention: Exclusive Interview With Jay Chen for Congress
  • 8Asians At The DNC: Asian American Justice Center (AAJC) Honors Christine Chen of APIAVote
  • 8Asians At The DNC: Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) DNC Caucus
  • 8Asians At The Democratic National Convention: Exclusive Interview With Chris Lu, Advisor to Obama

I decided if I could at a reasonable cost covered on my own dime, on my own vacation time, I’d attend the convention again. Well, I made it to Philadelphia again and have attended numerous events, which I’ll follow-up on more. But here’s a sample from:

Day 1 – Monday, July 25th:

California Delegates Breakfast

And that was only during the first day! More to come!
