Prior to the 2022 Federal Election, AAP spoke to emerging and established Asian Australian politicians to talk about how their cultures and identities have shaped the way they’ve interacted and influenced politics. Not often do we talk about our upbringings and how that’s affected the way we’ve interacted with the political system in Australia. From war to protest to unions, hear our politicians talk about their personal journeys on how they got to where they were today.
AAP reached out to many Asian Australian politicians and we interviewed those who responded to our emails. We want to thank all of them that have responded and given us the opportunity to interview them despite being busy with their campaigns.
