For more than 25 years, Advancing Justice | AAJC has worked to strengthen the voice of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and we are seeing the results of that work in all aspects of American life: In 2016, there are roughly 9.3 million eligible Asian American voters, up from just over 8 million in 2012. There are over 4,000 Asian American and Pacific Islander elected officials and appointees in the U.S. Community members have created and used hashtags like #MyAsianAmericanStory to combat stereotypes and share our real experiences. Though our programs and litigation, we plan to continue making change for our community.
