The mission of the Asian American Action Fund California Chapter is to encourage and empower AAPI Democrats to participate in the political process to address the severe under-representation of APAs in the political life of this state and country.
AAAFund-California focuses on local and state elections, seeking to maximize its impact by supporting county and municipal campaigns. In recent election cycles, AAAFund-California played key roles in the election of Santa Clara County Supervisor Otto Lee’s victory, the successful ballot initiative introducing ranked choice voting to the City of Albany, and supported Assemblyman Rob Bonta’s appointment to California Attorney General.
With the rising tide of anti-Asian violence throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, AAAFund-CA pivoted to coalition building and advocacy to combat anti-Asian hate and supporting A.G. Bonta’s re-election campaign. See AAAFund-CA’s 2020 cycle informational one-pager here!
