We Are AAPI Community Conversation: Qasim Rashid, U.S. Congressional Candidate in VA-1 (D)
During the month of August, We Are AAPI is highlighting AAPI Democratic candidates running for office in battleground states and districts. 2020 is an unprecedented election cycle and we believe the AAPI community can play a crucial role in supporting these trailblazing leaders on their way to making history.
Our inaugural candidate conversation is with Qasim Rashid, VA-1 Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress, who has already made history as the the first American Muslim in Virginia history to win a Congressional primary election. Join us to discuss his candidacy, major issues on his platform, and why the AAPI vote is important in 2020 and beyond.
Date and Time:
Wednesday, August 5, 7:30 - 8:30pm ET
Qasim Rashid is a human rights lawyer who has dedicated his life to support women who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence, serve children from vulnerable communities, and fight for the rights of persecuted Christians and Jews. Qasim is running to transform his advocacy for human rights into results for the working families of Virginia’s 1st District. Qasim channels his passion to serve the marginalized by working with non-profit organizations that advance women’s rights, improve water, food, shelter, healthcare, and education access for children living in poverty, and fight to protect religious freedom for all people. He has written numerous books and worked with the US Government to improve national security here at home. Together, with his wife Ayesha, they have three beautiful children, and live in Stafford, Virginia.
