What We Do

Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) is the nation’s leading nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to engaging, educating, and empowering Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities to strengthen their voices and create impact. For decades, our action-driven organization has led national initiatives to ensure AAPIs are represented and heard.

Our Focus Areas

  • Getting AAPIs registered and out to vote, and protecting the freedom to vote so that communities can advocate for the issues important to them.
  • Directly investing in grassroots organizations across the nation, and connecting them with expertise and resources to effectively engage with people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and languages at the local level.
  • Mobilizing AAPIs toward greater civic engagement around issues like fair districting, US Census and American Community Survey participation.
  • Developing data-driven research and supporting policies that help AAPIs build collective power and gain recognition as a growing national force.
  • Amplifying the issues impacting AAPIs today, and combatting dis- and mis-information spread within our communities.

Strengthening the Power of AAPIs in Our Democracy

Since 2007, APIAVote has been at the forefront of a rising movement to strengthen the presence and power of AAPIs in our democracy. With our Alliance for Civic Engagement (ACE), we work with more than 80 partners on outreach, organizing, and communications efforts that have reached millions of AAPI residents. The results from our efforts are clear: AAPIs are determining the outcome of elections because of historic turnout levels, ensuring that our communities’ needs are met.

APIAVote envisions a world that is inclusive.fair.collaborative.
