Wed May 6: Asian American Legislative Day
Lansing, MI -- Join us on Wednesday, May 6th for our Asian American Legislative Day! Let's show up and show our Lansing law makers that Asian Americans have a voice and loudly proclaim that we will no longer sit on the sidelines as policies impacting our families every day are made without consideration for the unique needs of our community. The day will include legislative visits, formal program in the Capitol Rotunda, lunch, capitol tour, and Michigan Asian Pacific American Affairs Commission's annual APA Heritage Month celebration.
Transportation will be provided from various locations around Metro Detroit and free lunch for the first 80 registrants!

The 2014 Asian AMerican Vote
On January 20, 2015, APIAVote-MI in partnership with the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund hosted a community presentation on the 2014 Asian American Vote, with comparative information from 11 states, including Michigan, about the Asian American vote in the Gubernatorial and Congressional elections, concerns about key issues, first-time voters, and profiles of the Asian American vote by ethnicity, nativity, party enrollment, age, and English proficiency. This exit poll reveals vital information about Asian American voting patterns that are often overlooked in mainstream voter surveys.
Below is the presentation of key findings in Michigan. The full report will be available in the coming weeks.
APIAVote-MI's success would not be possible without the talent and energy of our dedicated volunteers. Be a part of this fantastic team by volunteering today. Your time and skills helps us to continue our work toward equity and justice for the Asian American and all communities.
