Local Launches API Voter Project in Fresno
Hot off the success of our Vietnamese voter project, where we helped to register 10,000 new Vietnamese-American voters, we now have a project in Fresno to join forces with the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community to double the percentage of API voters in Fresno County. Overall, Asians and Pacific Islanders make up only 5% of the registered voters in Fresno County. Doubling that number would bring the total number of registered API voters to more than 45,000, representing an important voting bloc when mobilized.
With anti-labor, anti-community service politicians coming out of Fresno, mobilizing unregistered voters is more important than ever. Our political staff has begun to meet with a coalition of active API community groups to create the plan to register the new voters. Stay tuned for updates and for opportunities to get involved.
