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.
All of our endorsed candidates have demonstrated the following attributes:
- Participate actively in Asian American Pacific Islander organizations
- Demonstrate electoral viability
- Publicly endorse federal civil rights legislation, and similar state and local
anti-discrimination laws or legislation
- Advocate for policies that assist the Asian American Pacific Islander community, including on issues relating to civil rights, immigration, glass ceilings, underrepresentation, racial profiling, and women’s reproductive freedom.
Donate and support our efforts to increase progressive AAPIs in public office!
