Our communities’ ability to vote is under attack like we have not seen in over a generation. While the Senate may have failed to pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act in January, the fight is far from over and this issue is still unbelievably important. To get the message out about how these attacks on our democracy hurt AAPIs, we are launching a new social media campaign: #AAPIsForVotingRights.
This campaign will uplift messages from AAPI voters and their experiences with voting: how voting-by-mail has helped them, how they faced voter discrimination at the polls, and more. By sharing these experiences, APIAVote intends to educate our fellow Americans that we are in the fight for voting rights – and our rights are at stake.
Join us by using our social media toolkit: http://apia.vote/
This campaign will lead up to a virtual community briefing, including members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, on March 4. Stay tuned for details!
