In 2013, a small group of AAPI Democrats came together to figure out how AAPIs in the state could have a larger voice in the state's political landscape. Out of these discussions, the Arizona AAPI Democratic Caucus was born.
Chartered under the AZ Democratic Party (ADP), the Caucus advances equal rights for all people, regardless of race, age, sexual orientation or gender identity. The AAPI Caucus participates in the policy decisions and outreach programs of the ADP to maximize support of the Democratic Party and its endorsed candidates.
Democrats, united with the AAPI community, work to improve our schools, spur job creation and economic growth, and ensure that everyone can participate equally in our society.
Our vision is that the Arizona AAPI community is engaged and empowered in the political process and that we exercise our responsibility to vote, fulfill our commitment to public service and raise political and civic consciousness about AAPI issues.
