June 10, 2023 Now is the time to prepare for next year’s election and that means voter education and registration. The Democratic Party has been notoriously poor at outreach and development. To counteract that weakness, TurnPurple2Blue seeks out strong ally and grassroot groups who really connect and do the work on the ground. We can help by funding them, especially in the “off” years (a misnomer if there ever was one.)
That’s why I was so excited to watch the Environmental Voter’s Program (EVP) webinar on the the Rise of AAPI Youth Voters. I highly recommend watching this video! EVP has done great work identifying registered people who care about the environment, but then don’t vote. Their experienced analysis reveals a large new up and coming group of voters that really care about the environment as a public health issue. It’s Asian American Pacific Islander Youth! You will see that they also heavily influence first generation immigrants – who often need language support as well as encouragement to vote. Please donate if you can. Donations to AIPA are even tax deductible! Early money to these groups will have a huge impact!
