Is TACL a political organization?

TACL is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and fully adheres to the regulations of non-partisanship. While TACL’s programs focus primarily on the community of Taiwanese Americans in the United States, TACL supports Taiwan as a sovereign and democratic nation of people, and the furthering of democracy in the U.S., Taiwan, and the world. We support the right to self-determination for Taiwanese people, and respect their ability to determine their own fate.

What age group is TACL?

While there are no set age restrictions, most programs target individuals under the age of 45. TAP chapters are typically geared towards young professionals in their 20’s to mid-30’s. The Political Internship Program is aimed at college students. Meanwhile, LID and LYF camps are for students ages 8 -20 and the TACL Scholarships are generally awarded to graduating high school seniors.

Is TACL only for second-generation Taiwanese Americans?

TACL welcomes all interested members, including international professionals living in the U.S. and recent immigrants, to become active with TACL and attend our events.

Do I have to identify as or be Taiwanese to participate?

TACL welcomes all attendees of every identity, race, ethnicity, national origin, and political belief. We focus on enhancing the Taiwanese American community, including both those of Taiwanese heritage as well as anyone open and interested in it.

Where does TACL get its funding from?

TACL fundraises its own operating budget from events, and the support of businesses, foundations, other non-profits, schools, and individuals.
