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?

邁向國家正常化之路
作為一個身處重要戰略位置的島國,台灣總是在兩大帝國–美國與中國–複雜的政治角力中載浮載沉。過去幾年,台灣的公民力量崛起,大大改變了了台灣的命運;黨國勢力衰弱的同時,我們終於能慢慢往國家正常化的方向前進。然而世界變革紛起、美國總統川普上任,台灣更面臨了關鍵時刻–究竟在這充滿變動的時代中,身為台美人、身為草根倡議者,我們要如何在強權政治斡旋的縫隙中,走上到台灣的國家正常化之路?

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.
