AAA Fund’s mission is to ensure equal political, educational, social, and economic rights for all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. A critical focus of this mission is to ensure that every AAPI voter is able to vote in government elections. Many AAPI communities face additional barriers in securing the right to vote, such as voter ID laws, which hinder low-income populations and citizens with limited English proficiency. Restrictions on early voting or on absentee voting also affect our AAPI elders, who have limited mobility and access to the vote.
