Northwestern University

"Northwestern University’s Korean American Student Association (KASA) is thrilled to be working with APIAVote to encourage civic engagement and involvement in the AAPI community! We’ve had an eye-opening time so far organizing voter registration drives on our campus and speaking to AAPI voters in Virginia and New Jersey, and are looking forward to more events that will help our community understand why voting is critical to get our voices heard. This program has been meaningful because we’ve gotten to see how impactful individual interactions can be toward accomplishing a common goal, from the simple act of registering to vote to being part of huge turnouts in far-away states. Young voters represent the future of this country and its political system, and getting them involved early will cement the foundation of civic engagement for years to come."
