The National Coalition for APA Community Development published these facts about growing poverty in our API communities: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders are among the fastest growing poverty population today in the US – increasing at a rate of 37% for Asian Americans and an alarming 60% for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.
With funding from APIA Votes, Apace contacted 17,682 Vietnamese voters in Washington state in October and November 2014. We sent each voter two bi-lingual mailers; and organized 5 bi-lingual phone banks encouraging VN voters to vote. We made a total of 42,000 contacts! We have much more work to do in 2015!
