Give today because you can help close the turnout gap for the 2018 midterm elections and 2020 presidential election as young AAPIs become eligible voters in the next three years. AAPI millennials (age 18-34) had the lowest level of voter participation out of all age groups in the 2016 presidential election.
You can make a difference now. Will you please send your special gift today of $20, $50, $100, $500 or more?
Your kind donation keeps the lights on for our #WeTheAAPI Ambassador program, which provides resources and guidance to AAPI student leaders at 40 colleges and universities to run voter registration drives and boost turnout rates of young AAPI voters.
One Ambassador from the University of Washington shared that he is not able to vote at the moment, which drives him to make sure others know about their freedom to vote and show up at the polls on Election Day.
A Northwestern University student shared how she witnessed the direct impact of people working toward a common goal to register students and see AAPIs vote in high numbers.
Any gift that you give today on #GivingTuesday is an investment in the power of our youth to make our nation become a more just society for generations to come.
Will you help us reach our goal of $40,000? Donate $20 or more.
Voting is a habit-forming practice. Young AAPIs are already engaged in volunteer activities and issue advocacy. With voter education, they would learn how their vote has the power to improve their daily lives and community.
It is simple math: AAPIs vote when they are contacted about elections; AAPIs vote for the rest of their lives once activated.
An Ambassador at Harvard College shared how the program strengthened her resolve in civic engagement. At the inaugural summit, she met amazing student leaders who inspire her to stay optimistic and organized in this political moment.
The student Ambassadors’ passion and commitment will make sure our AAPI voice is heard, seen and felt in 2018 and beyond. Your donation to APIAVote on #GivingTuesday will help empower our youth to lead a movement in driving change at the polls on Election Day.
