Amy Lin, Taiwan Supporter

The AsiaConnect has a feature on Amy Lin, Program Director of the Formosa Foundation, which works for full recognition of Taiwan by the US:
Amy Lin firmly believes in the Taiwanese people's right to self-determination and right to be free. So strong are her convictions that she works as Program Director of the Formosa Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is committed to strengthening ties between Taiwan and the United States and protecting both their vital interests. The Formosa Foundation takes the position that the United States should recognize and support Taiwan - in keeping with a shared democratic and human rights value system - rather than continue its One China Policy, which the organization believes increases the strategic threat of China against Taiwan. Amy advances this position through educational and advocacy efforts that include conferences, newsletters, media relations, and other forms of publicity. Most notably, she created the organization's flagship Ambassador Program, which sends young leaders to Washington, DC, to meet with members of Congress and promote enhanced relations between the United States and Taiwan. To learn more about the Formosa Foundation and Amy Lin, check out this week's Nonprofit Spotlight.

Yeah, she's really great and I contact her very often. I would ask her why the Formosa Foundation wouldn't spread out to other states like Alabama (where I live) for example.

Also the audience for the most part is usually Taiwanese with some whites, but I rarely see blacks or hispanics there and I don't know what's going on there.

At any rate, she's a hard worker for the foundation..
