Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) voters are the fastest growing electorate and the electoral margins of victory. A 2022 survey shows that most AAPIs trust their close friends and immediate family members as sources of information about social issues. We’re reaching out to our sisters, mothers, aunties, neighbors, and loved ones this election season because we all have power—to influence one another and drive systemic change. We’re mobilizing voters to create the political conditions under which we will continue organizing our communities beyond this election.
Voting might not be a common conversation topic for a lot of us, but the more we talk about it, the more we can connect with AAPI women on the issues they care about most. These conversations can happen virtually or face-to-face, and still be effective no matter which organizing tools we use.
