    AAPI Teatime on Zoom

    „Teatime is a way for us to help members get to know each other and discover what’s important to us — and what we want to organise around,“ said Powen Shiah, member of the Global AAPI Caucus Steering Committee.

    Members from the Europe, Middle-East and Africa region joined us for Teatime on January 28th to exchange experiences, ideas and stories. The first in a series of planned global and local community-building events hosted by the Global AAPI Caucus, the virtual event aimed to give members a relaxed space to connect.

    Event Recap: Georgia on our Mind - AAPI Outreach Organisers and Tom Perez


    Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are “moving from being the marginalised to the margin of victory” according to Vyanti Joseph, AAPI constituency and outreach coordinator for the Warnock for Senate campaign in Georgia. 

    In a panel webinar on December 17th, Ms. Joseph, along with DNC chair Tom Perez, DNC AAPI caucus chair Bel Leong-Hong, AAPI constituency and outreach coordinator for the Ossoff for Senate campaign Cam Ashling and AAPI coalition director for the Georgia Democrats Linh Nguyen, spoke with Democrats Abroad about the growing importance and influence of the AAPI community on local and national politics in the US.

    Recipes from Home: Lina's Red Beans and Rice (can be vegan/vegetarian)


    Since moving to Glasgow to go to university I find myself missing lots about New Orleans. I miss the warm weather, the people, my friends, family, the annual church Christmas tree sale, and most of all the food. Most New Orleanian dishes are meat heavy, spicy, and with specific ingredients hard to find anywhere else, so a lot of improvisation is needed when trying to cook for a group of friends with two vegans, a vegetarian, someone with a gluten intolerance, and make sure its not too spicy. Sadly this makes it impossible to make my favorite dish (chicken and sausage gumbo), but I've found that my red beans and rice recipe is always a hit! Red beans and rice are traditionally a Monday (laundry day) night dinner, as it's a low effort dish that can simmer all day while doing you're laundry. I've adjusted a couple recipes I've found online to my taste and schedule so feel free to improvise!

    Recipes from Home: Brianna's Sweet Potato Casserole

    I first moved to Ireland in November 2018. It didn't make sense to turn around and visit America less than a month into my move, so my partner's family put on a Thanksgiving to make me feel less homesick. After hearing about "the marshmallow thing" and how positively gross it sounded, I had to defend my southeastern heritage and bring Sweet Potato Casserole to the table. This is the recipe my own Chinese mother loves, a "not too sweet" version using maple syrup instead of copious amounts of brown sugar that also results in a high fibre snack while you're in a flurry of cooking. Try to find American marshmallows if you can, I've found the UKI ones don't melt quite right for the casserole.

  • Recipes from Home: Karen's Caesar Salad (no raw eggs)


    Thanks to Covid, I can't travel home to New York City on a regular basis. In Munich, the asian food scene is pretty much non-existent. Since I don't have time to become a DimSum chef, I figured I could at least find a way to come close to my favorite New York salad - the Carmine's version.

    Volunteer With The AAPI Caucus

    The Democrats Abroad Asian American Pacific Islander Caucus is looking for your support at global, national, and chapter levels. Here is more information about opportunities to volunteer with our different working groups. Let us know how you want to get involved, by checking off the working groups you're interested in the form below.

    Communications & Outreach

    Help reach new caucus members and share stories of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders living abroad. This working group curates our caucus’s online presence (web, social media, email) and promotes events, activities, and issues.

    Country Committee Guidelines

    Help coordinate with, support, and organize with Democrats Abroad's 40+ country committees to establish an AAPI caucus at the country and chapter levels.


    The AAPI community is large and diverse, which means there is also a wide range of issues impacting our members. Help us identify and educate our members about these different issues.

    Events in a Box

    To help local AAPI caucuses, we are preparing pre-made events that caucus leaders at the country and chapter levels can use for events to bring their members together. Volunteers can help create an event based on issues identified by the Issues Working Group and find ways to facilitate discussions.


    Organize speaking events with prominent members of the AAPI community. This could include these roles:

    • Coordinate event with the Global Communications & Global AAPI Co-Chairs
    • Zoom training with Global IT
    • Liaise with speakers and plan logistics
