Developing the leadership, political analysis, and organizing capacity of Asian American women & families in Michigan
Asian Americans are the fastest growing electorate in the United States and the largest growing racial group in Michigan. We seek to empower, educate, and organize this powerful and diverse group through community capacity building and culturally competent programming to lift up the voices of Asian American women and families.
The MAAPI Civic Engagement Survey will map Michigan Asian American Pacific Islander voter participation in local and federal elections. The survey will provide a clear understanding of communities' needs, priorities and inclusion in the political process so that AAPIs can build organizing power and ensure their voices are heard.
The MAAPI Survey is available in English, Chinese and Bangla. Please take a moment to fill out the survey here:
