Civic Engagement

We work to increase electoral participation of Asian Americans and other communities of color in Northern Virginia, because each voter we educate and turn out helps amplify Asian American voices, bring us closer to a true representative democracy, and advance social, economic, and racial justice in Virginia’s Asian American communities. Our grassroots organizing work aims to educate, mobilize, and protect voters through canvassing, phone banking, texting, mailers, and poll monitoring.

Voting in Virginia

We’ve compiled nonpartisan information in English, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese to help you and your friends and family make a plan to vote in the following Virginia elections- including instructions on the different methods of voting, pertinent deadlines, and ways to get involved.
