    View the Documentary "First Vote”

    Asian Americans are the fastest growing population in the U.S. and more than 11 million AAPI will be able to vote in 2020.

    In a newly released documentary, First Vote, Yi Chen follows a cross section of politically engaged Chinese American voters, all first-time voters, during the 2018 midterm elections. This includes a variety of voters: A gun-toting Tea Party-favorite candidate courting GOP votes in the South; a podcaster in Ohio who became a citizen in order to vote for Trump; a progressive journalist confronting Chinese Americans for Trump after moving to a battleground state from Beijing; and a University of North Carolina professor teaching about race and racism in the U.S.

    RSVP to receive the link to view this newly released documentary from the comfort of your own home. Please consider helping us cover the costs of the film license ($202) by making a donation to Democrats Abroad.

    By sharing this film, our goal is to bring awareness to the political influence of the AAPI community and find ways to improve voter outreach.

    When can I watch?

    You'll receive a link you can use to watch the documentary any time between Thursday, October 29 and Tuesday, November 10, 2020
