As we head into what may be the most important midterm election in U.S. history, the DA AAPI Global Caucus applauds the hard work of our Democrats Abroad members and the local Democrat communities state-side for their tremendous work in getting out the vote.
We also applaud the organizations who have collaborated with us this year in addressing and clarifying the key issues facing AAPI communities, and for their advocacy and tireless dedication in encouraging participation in the voting process. In the final stretch to the election next month, below are links to some of our events that you may have missed which feature experts from these important organizations, and links to these organizations with useful information related to voting.
