Navigating the path toward Taiwan's normalization as a country
As a small but tenacious country, Taiwan performs a complicated balancing act between two great powers - the United States and China. In the past few years, with the rise of civic power and vibrant democracy movements, the political landscape and the fate of Taiwan has forever been changed. With the KMT party-state’s power deteriorating, we are finally making the steps toward the normalization of our country. However, with the recent election of President Trump, we are now at a critical juncture of US-Taiwan relations, facing both new challenges and new opportunities. As Taiwanese American grassroot advocates, how can we find a path for Taiwan to establish itself as a country, despite the looming uncertainty worldwide?
Guest Speaker: June Lin 林倢
Soon after the Sunflower Movement came to an end, June and several other participants founded the social justice group Democracy Tautin. The group aimed to follow up on the cross-strait agreement issues and to continue the energy of Sunflower Movement. Later that year, she also joined KP’s campaign in the Taipei City mayoral election. From 2015 to 2016, June worked in the Lee Tung-Hui Foundation as a Researcher and also in Legislative Yuan as Legislator Su Chi-fen's congressional aide. June is now based in DC and is currently working as a policy associate at the Formosan Association for Public Affairs.
