Leading Asian Americans Launch AAPI Progressive Action

Yesterday, leading progressive voices in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, including former commissioners of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, launched AAPI Progressive Action. The new organization will formulate and promote domestic policies of importance to AAPI communities, engage in direct advocacy with lawmakers, and work to elect progressive voices across the country. AAPI Progressive Action will focus its immediate efforts on areas that have a significant AAPI electorate and look for important congressional and state government wins in the upcoming elections. “Our community can no longer be marginalized because we will be the margin of victory for progressive candidates,” said Dr. Tung Nguyen (pictured), former Chair of the President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs. Learn more here.
