my article for NBC News Asian America:
"FIBA has taken a step towards change, but this policy alteration will continue to lead to an unequal playing field," said Jasjit Singh, executive director of the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF). "We hope that FIBA will soon recognize Sikhs, Muslims and Orthodox Jews can freely play with their respective articles of faith and not require process or paperwork to play beyond their home countries.”

Report: Asian American ACA Enrollment 'Disproportionately High' - NBC News.com

Great data from Karthick Ramakrishnan and AAPI Data as always. My article for NBC News Asian America on Asian American Affordable Care Act Enrollment:

for all my nonprofit friends: Brilliant, hysterical, children's books about nonprofit work. "If you give a board treasurer a cookie, he may ask who's paying for the cookie. When you answer that you're using funds he approved on the budget, he's probably going to ask to see a copy of the budget...." and so much more, each one painfully true.

My article in NBCNews Asian America:
In the last few days, immigration advocates responded with new campaigns -- virtually and in the real world -- to keep up pressure on the administration to act: on Twitter with the hashtags #WeCantWait, #NoMoreDelays, #GoBigObama,#Not1More, and #FightForFamilies; in Twitter Town Halls; at rallies and press conferences; with postcard campaigns; and by occupying spaces such as Senator Harry Reid’s office.
