Join Our Movement
What's at stake:
With this election, our lives, health, and rights to determine our future are on the line.
Will you do your part and join us in mobilizing voters for what may be the most important election of our generation?
Here are THREE ways you can get involved:
1. Attend our Voter Forum
This November, we have the chance to win some major structural and systemic changes through electoral work. As we’re living through a global pandemic, our communities are facing unsafe working conditions as essential workers, the threat of eviction, food insecurity, and so much more. We must vote to shape our future.
We’re teaming up with progressive AAPI organizations across the state to discuss how civic engagement strategy can complement grassroots organizing and to learn about the racial and economic justice initiatives that are on the California ballot this year. Some of the propositions on the ballot this year are historic opportunities to transform our state, built upon battles that our groups have been fighting for decades!
Tune in on Tuesday, September 29th, 5:30-7:30pm to learn more about these statewide initiatives, discuss local city + county initiatives in localized breakout rooms, and get plugged into opportunities to help our AAPI communities get out the vote!

2. Write postcards to infrequent AAPI voters
In November 2018, 36% of registered voters in California did not cast a vote. Every election, millions of registered voters opt out of the election for a variety of reasons. Although who or what you vote for is confidential, WHETHER OR NOT you vote is public record. We need YOUR help to contact registered voters who haven’t voted in a while and share why their vote matters.
Sign up to write to infrequent voters, and we’ll give you:
- A list of registered voters who haven’t voted and their contact information
- An invitation to a training and collective writing session to build community with other volunteers on October 5th, 6-7pm PST.
- Postcards and envelopes to mail to your recipients (you’ll need to purchase your own stamps)
- A few extra postcards with original artwork for you to keep for yourself or send to your loved ones
- A chance to inspire voters!
Special thanks to Amplifier for providing the artwork featured on the postcards!
3. Call AAPI voters
Out of all the racial groups, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the LEAST LIKELY to be contacted about elections. Will you do your part in helping us change that?
We’re calling voters to educate them on Prop 15 (Schools and Communities First), a historic ballot initiative that will restore $12 billion to our schools and community programs by closing corporate property tax loopholes.
