Voting is Your Privilege: Unsung Heroes

Our second segment of the voting video series showcases two important Asian American suffragists: Dr. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, an immigrant to the U.S., unable to vote herself due to the Chinese Exclusion Act, and Tye Leung Schulze, American by birth, who was the first Chinese woman to vote in a Presidential primary.
