We all know Chloe Bennet as TV’s resident Hapa and the lead of Agents of Shield. If you follow her infamous Twitter account, you’ll also know that she’s an outspoken advocate of Asian-American representation and is vocal against the practice of whitewashing/erasure/yellow facing.

You might not know Brad Jenkins by name, but if you’re politically-aware, you will know his work with Funny or Die. Did you see this video of Obama on Between Two Ferns? That was all Brad Jenkins doing. Brad also spent four years serving as President Obama’s Associate Director in The White House Office of Public Engagement. And finally, Brad is a Hapa who was featured as the first guest on the podcast Southern Fried Asian talking about his mixed-race Southern roots.

Brad Jenkins: “Chloe and I met at the Obama White House’s final event before turning over the keys to Trump. It was a sad day, man. Chloe and I spoke on a panel to over a hundred Asian American Pacific Islander political leaders. The organizers planned this conference long before the election. So my guess is that they expected it to be a victory lap for Asian American political leaders. Instead it was a wake-up call.”

Chloe Bennet: “Brad and I realized that we couldn’t count on anyone else to bring our communities together. We have to do it ourselves. There were barely any young people at the conference. And, we kept hearing about how Asian Americans don’t vote. I mean, it’s crazy; we are the fastest growing community in the United States — but, we vote the least. There weren’t any real solutions being offered by these leaders. So, we committed that day to do what we can to lift our communities up. And now here we are!”

Once co-founder Cate Park was added to the mix, RUN (which stands for “Represent Us Now”) was launched. Though Liberals and Democrats had a pretty big win in this past November, and there’s a few Hapas in Congress (Shout-out to Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Tammy Duckworth, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard!), there’s so much more work to be done. As Chloe says “we vote the least.” Which means we have more power than we think, and with 2018 elections just around the corner, now is the time to get in the know and get involved.
