This podcast is the brainchild of Tony Nagatani and Kevin Xu, two former staffers of (a lot of) political campaigns and the Obama White House. We just happen to be Asian American.

We started the Model MAJORITY Podcast as a First Amendment project to talk about politics, activism, and civic engagement through the lens of field organizers, grassroots activists, and Asian Americans. It’s a voice that’s sorely lacking in our public discourse, especially considering that the American Asian and Pacific Islanders community is growing at a faster rate than any other comparable racial group. It’s a community that needs to be more heard and better understood.
