2016 is an important year for APIs: This November, we see many opportunities for investments in our families and communities, and many investments at stake. Together we have the power to make a difference in this year’s elections: Between 2000 and 2010, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) communities grew 61%, and the Asian American community increased 46%. The API community could be key in deciding 5 House District races, but we need to vote and encourage others to vote!
We created a collection of resources to make civic engagement as feasible and easy as possible. We have guides that explain ballot measures, elected positions, the voting process, candidate information, and more. More importantly, we’ve made many of these resources available in languages other than English! They include: Vietnamese, Marshallese, Korean, Hindi, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese.
Have questions about ballot measures? Feeling salty from this year’s elections? Join us at our Ballots + Boba 2016 Ballot Party! We’ll be going through ballot measures important for our communities, facilitating discussion around them, and we’ll have a build your own boba tea station. Don’t miss out – RSVP Here
