from spoken word to dance to visual arts and everything else in between! Come out to relax, see some amazing performances, support the arts at Princeton, and enjoy free drinks and snacks
CAFÉ NIGHT SHOWCASE:
A night of performances showcasing and celebrating student talent on campus, usually accompanied by bubble tea, sushi, and other goods! Last year, we expanded Cafe Night to include a gallery for student artwork that was open for a week.
Partnering with the Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), these meet-ups occur throughout the year and connect current students with Princeton alumni.
NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION:
Though Asian Americans make up more than 5% of all eligible voters in battleground states, AAPI populations consistently have the lowest voter turnout out of any racial racial group. We partner with with nonprofit APIAVOTE to run national voter registration drives to mobilize Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in electoral and civic participation.
