Actress Chloe Bennet (Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.) recognized the significance of this year’s election and the need to raise voter turnout among the Asian American community. That is why she teamed up with like-minded individuals to launch RunAAPI and its #TheNew campaign, an AAPI youth voter outreach campaign.
There are 150,000 new Asian American and Pacific Islander voters every year, and RunAAPI believes every vote makes a difference. Young Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are America’s fastest growing group, making them a powerful force in today’s culture and politics.
RUN AAPI is an organization that strives to give Asian American Pacific Islanders better representation and discusses the importance of AAPI voting.
