Description

The AAPI electorate is a formidable community with the power to shape and influence elections down the ticket throughout the U.S. As AAPIs are the fastest growing racial group in the country, it is essential that our community remain vigilant about voting and achieving representation at a proportional rate to elected office.

This closing plenary features a panel of rising AAPI officials at the local, state, and federal levels from across the country. Discussions will focus on their respective paths to elected office, challenges they face in their roles as AAPI officials, and the urgent need to pass the most significant voting rights and democracy reform in more than half a century: The For the People Act.

This event is presented in collaboration with the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL).
