Policy & Elections
Elevating issues through community engagement, research, mobilizing voters, and coordinating grassroots advocacy actions to ensure all AAPI have a voice in the policies and decisions that affect their lives.
Advocacy & Civic Engagement
Our goal is to win concrete changes in local ordinances, state and federal legislation, on ballot measures, and through other public policy.
A political endorsement is an official statement of support from APANO AF for a particular candidate. It means the candidate’s record, performance in office or promise of future relations align greatly with APANO AF’s mission and values to better serve the community.

Our region faces serious challenges, and our current approach to solving them is not working. Thousands of Portlanders shared their concerns with the independent Charter Commission about elections and Portland’s outdated commission form of government.
