Asian American Organizing Project (AAOP) is outreaching about the Minnesota 2017 Local Election to Asian and Asian American residents and families; such as the Vietnamese, Hmong, Khmer, and Filipino communities. Often the Asian community's experiences and concerns are written-off and forgotten during and after Election season. Especially, young Asian people (18 - 35 years old) whom are the least contacted group when it comes to the important election that will negatively or positively impact their lives. AAOP continues to do voter education, and further uplift issues that are affecting our communities. This year we want to ensure 7,000 Asian voters and community members' know their rights and are well-informed about their choices for the November 7 Election. We want to help uplift the community's voices and concerns so they're taken seriously, and their values are reflected in their neighborhood, city council, school board, and government this Election.
Our phone bank and door knock outreach enables us to build community connectedness by having conversations about Asian experiences relating to jobs, education, healthcare, immigration, and racial and gender justice. Please join us, sign up for a shift or two to help us strengthen the power of our Asian and Asian American voices and vote.
