FAPA 總部邀請兩位參與領導這次太陽花學運的學生─魏揚、黃郁芬─訪美並進行演講活動。
1989年生, 國立清華大學社會所學生, 曾參與反國光石化開發案的社會運動, 現擔任黑色島國青年陣線總召。

兩代知識分子撐場 魏揚全家總動員上街

1990年生, 國立清華大學社會所學生, 曾經參與數十場社會運動, 包括反媒體壟斷運動和因為大埔事件而發起的佔領內政部運動等, 為黑色島國青年陣線的創始成員, 現任太陽花學運的學生發言人。
黃郁芬 浪漫熱情 全力爭民主
318佔領立院 黃郁芬盼喚醒民眾
面對敵意提問 黃郁芬展大將之風

兩位學生將於 4/10 晚間 7:30 於華府基督教長老教會 (7410 Needwood Road, Derwood, MD 20855)。
FAPA安排學生訪美主要目的, 是要拜訪美國國會、行政部門、智庫等, 向主流社會說明這次台灣太陽花學運的情況, 將學生的聲音傳向國際得到更多的支持。
太陽花學運, 讓我們看到台灣 1990 年代出生的年輕朋友們對於民主和公共事務的熱忱;由學生發起的社會運動, 讓台灣政府必須正視社會的聲音, 創造台灣民主的新篇章。
此次演講會將同時募款, 募得之資金全數用於:
1. 刊登太陽花學運廣告(Democracy at 4 am) 於「The Hill」(國會山莊報)之費用。
2. 學生此行訪美所有支出。
3. 資助更多太陽花學生六月來美參加 FAPA 「年輕世代領袖培訓營」之旅行費用。

捐款支票請開給 FAPA。所有捐贈款項皆可扣抵美國聯邦所得稅。
很多人問道:我們在美國能替太陽花學生作什麼?台美同鄉們, 這是我們的機會, 
希望各位同鄉能夠支持這兩位年輕的學生, 使他們這次的訪美順利完成;並用行動贊助學生, 讓更多太陽花學運的學生也有機會來到美國學習和訪問。
