Civic Engagement

We work to increase electoral participation of Asian Americans and other marginalized communities in Virginia, because each voter we educate and turn out helps amplify Asian American voices, brings us closer to a truly representative democracy, and advances social, economic, and racial justice in Virginia. Our grassroots organizing work aims to educate, mobilize, and protect voters through a variety of multilingual methods, including canvassing, phone banking, texting, mailers, and poll monitoring.

Voting in Virginia

We’ve compiled non-partisan information in English, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese to help you and your friends and family make a plan to vote in Virginia’s 2021 General Elections– including instructions on the different methods of voting, pertinent deadlines, and ways to get involved.
