AAPI Community Matters

A Joint Statement  September 20, 2020

The 2020 election is a historical moment for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI)
community. Our rapidly increasing share of the electorate, collective economic impact, and
professional and civic achievements present a powerful, unparalleled opportunity for political
engagement. Our votes matter.

Our votes matter to future generations. We must advocate for the common interests of the
AAPI community, allied with other minorities, to build our collective American dream.

Our votes matter to the wellbeing of all Americans. America is strengthened by multicultural
diversity when all ethnicities partake in our democracy. We have the obligation and privilege
to shape the future of this nation with our unique contribution.

We celebrate our diversities while uniting under a common goal: increasing AAPI voter
turnout and census participation, holding ourselves accountable and being counted.
We pledge to reach out to our relatives, friends, organizations, and community to participate
in the 2020 census and election at all levels of government.

Representation Matters! AAPI Votes Matter!
