Why Asian American Advocacy Fund: AAAF has been a Flip the Vote partner since 2020, deeply engaging often overlooked Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in Georgia. AAAF organizers conduct outreach in eight languages via door knocking, phone and text banking, political education, and mobilization events, reaching tens of thousands of voters across Georgia.
Georgia has almost 200,000 registered AAPI voters, and more than 45,000 voted for the first time in 2020. Yet the Democratic party and most Georgia grassroots groups pay little attention to AAPI communities, who are more likely to vote Democratic than the average Georgian. Inspiring these voters again by December 6 could make the margin of difference that sends Senator Warnock back to the Senate and maintains the Democratic majority. This is why Flip the Vote has determined we can have an outsized impact by focusing our Georgia runoff recommendation on one group, AAAF, which needs our immediate support to meet their outreach goals over the next four weeks. We encourage donations to AAAF’s 501c4 arm for maximum flexibility, but please email us at email@example.com if you want to contribute to nonpartisan 501c3 efforts in Georgia.
