Top PACs of Color Form a Pack

The AAPI Victory Fund, Emgage PAC, and the Latino Victory Fund announced a partnership that will allow them to support diverse, progressive minority candidates in the upcoming midterm elections. In this partnership, the three groups will also work together to keep progressive organizations and the donor community accountable. “Elections continue to be won by the slimmest of margins and ensuring success requires candidates to get the ‘margin of victory’ votes. Simply put, our three communities represent that margin, and with the right investment and cultivation, we can ensure a sustainable majority,” said Shekar Narasimhan, Chair of the AAPI Victory Fund. “The 2016 Elections unleashed an unprecedented wave of hate and discrimination at the highest levels ... The Muslim American community knows this firsthand, and we must work to ensure that minority communities become more political (sic) engaged,” said Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage PAC. Cristóbal Alex, president of the Latino Victory Fund said, “Our work in 2017 changed the landscape of elections, but there is much work that remains to ensure we take back our government from those that work against our communities and the American Dream.” More here.
