Featured Non-Profit: FAPA-YPG

Taiwan is currently not recognized by the UN as a sovereign nation despite being a democratic state of more than 23 million people — a population greater than that of 75 percent of the UN’s member nations. It fulfills all the criteria for a nation-state as defined in the 1933 Montevideo Convention: a defined territory, a permanent population and a government that is capable of entering into relations with other states.  Taiwan currently has diplomatic ties with 23 UN member states. The 2010 US Census revealed that more than 230,000 citizens reported Taiwanese heritage.

The Formosan Association for Public Affairs (FAPA) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that: Promotes international support for the right of the people of Taiwan to establish an independent and democratic country and to join the international community; Promotes relations and cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S.; Protects the right of self-determination for people of Taiwan; Promotes peace and security for Taiwan and advances the rights and interests of Taiwanese communities throughout the world. In 2003, the Formosan Association for Public Affairs established an affiliate organization designed for young adults. This organization, whose goals nearly parallel with those of FAPA’s, is known as the Young Professional Group (YPG).
