Endorsed Candidates

Endorsed Candidates


At the heart of the AAAFund’s mission is the endorsement and election of progressive candidates who have an outstanding track record of support for the APPI community. We often focus on races where the APPI community is large enough to influence the outcome of the election.

Donate and support our efforts to increase progressive AAPIs in public office!
