A join op-ed by APIAVote Executive DIrector Christine Chen and Rock the Vote COO Carolyn DeWitt: "The 2016 election cycle will be the largest mobilization of AAPIs in civic engagement. An unprecedented number of AAPI organizations and community leaders are coming together to ensure we effectively register and engage AAPI voters. We look not to the distant future for this community to grow, but to today and tomorrow — AAPIs are taking action, are organizing, and are prepared for the now."

"AAPIs are the fastest growing racial group in the nation and a rising political force. Understanding their needs and concerns—and addressing them—is vital not only for the AAPI community, but indeed for the strength and future of our nation... So the true challenge is not one of data, language, or statistics. The true challenge is convincing polling organizations that AAPI voices and views matter. That they are worth the investment."
