I will nominate and appoint federal officials and judges who look just like the rest of America, including the AAPI community. I will build on the Obama-Biden Administration’s efforts to ensure that everyone has a voice in a Biden Administration. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/NsMFuqwVn9
As President, I'll nominate talented people to lead my administration who represent the diversity of America, including from the AAPI community. And I will make sure we are consulting with the AAPI community on all matters of federal policy. Your voice must be heard. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/29RM1KP3XP
The 1964 Civil Rights Act promised equal access to federally funded programs for Americans who speak primary languages other than English. It’s time that we fulfill that promise. #AAPI2020
To lift up low-income AAPI communities we will empower workers and raise the minimum wage to $15, invest $10 billion to support small business owners and entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds, and create 3 million more jobs in underserved communities. #AAPI2020
NOW: Today we're joined by the Democratic presidential campaigns to discuss the AAPI agenda in advance of the primary elections. We are moderating this non-partisan town hall, which is hosted by @APIAVote @AAPIData @NCAPAtweets
& @AAJA. Use #AAPI2020 to join the conversation!
Asian American & Pacific Islanders have been core to our nation's strength yet have faced a history of exclusion—from the Chinese Exclusion Act to Japanese internment. We often overlook that legacy, in part because the community is not given a voice. That must end. #AAPI2020
Learn more about my platform at the #AAPI2020 Twitter Town Hall, happening soon at 2 PM ET—and join the conversation using the hashtag #AAPI2020.
I represent the most diverse district in Congress, made up of an AAPI majority population. As the only AAPI candidate running for President, I will continue to lift their voices & unique concerns impacting AAPI & ensure they are represented in my Administration. #AAPI2020
Data equity is a civil rights issue. AAPI people are not a monolith, and aggregated data hides the fact that many AAPI families are hanging on by their fingernails. Data erasure limits our abilities to tackle the structural barriers faced by distinct AAPI communities. #AAPI2020
I support a family-based immigration system grounded in civil and human rights. We will:
☑️ Protect and expand family-based visas as well as cut waiting times and backlogs
☑️ Dismantle the cruel deportation and detention machine
☑️ Guarantee all immigrants due process
's ability to understand the incredible diversity within the AAPI community and turn that into a bold policy vison for the future drew me to this campaign. Be sure to check #AAPI2020 out! https://t.co/Jom4rA2RZs
Q1: We are one of the fastest-growing populations in the US yet we are often left out of policy discussions and decision making. How will you ensure #AAPI communities will have a seat at the table? How will you ensure we have a voice within your administration? #AAPI2020
Personnel is policy. I’m proud to have the first Asian American campaign manager of any major presidential campaign. I’ve pledged to appoint a diverse cabinet. I’ll listen to and learn from AAPI leaders who have been at the forefront of advocating for their communities. #AAPI2020
As an Asian/Polynesian/Caucasian woman, I bring the voices of NHPI leaders to the Presidency to ensure we stand together to address the inequities that still exist. Indigenous voices in this country will be heard & will have a seat at the table in my Administration. #AAPI2020
One-third of our policy team is AAPI and my administration will recruit AAPI leaders at all levels—not just to shape decisions specific to their communities, but all decisions of national importance. #AAPI2020
First off, we need to stop treating the AAPI community like some kind of monolith. They’re anything but. That’s why I prioritize working with AAPI leaders with backgrounds and experiences in all communities. #AAPI2020
Government services must be available to all Americans, including those who may have a language barrier. As we do in my multicultural home state of Hawaii, accurate demographic data allows us to provide multi-lingual translations to serve the needs of our communities. #AAPI2020
A national immigrant public defender corps is an incredible idea, and one I haven’t heard before. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/1TAWjLbP1R
According to the most recent FBI data, Sikhs are among the top three most targeted groups for hate crimes, and Sikh kids face school bullying rates 3x the national average. What will the candidates do to ensure that communities like ours are better protected from hate? #AAPI2020
The US's engagement with Asian and Pacific Islanders peoples has always been one of militarism and colonialism. What would your administration do to reinstate the sovereignty of Hawai'i, Guam, Samoa & end the military occupation of Korea, the Philippines, and Okinawa? #AAPI2020
Take a look at the #AAPI2020 hashtag.
You’ll see an ethnic group advocating for specific policy with major presidential candidates joining in the conversation to offer support.
Then think about who makes up the DNC base and ask yourself how many candidates have tweeted #ADOS? https://t.co/m2VsCVyXm4
moderated a Twitter town hall today. Democratic presidential campaigns took on the issues Asian American and Pacific Islanders care about ahead of primary season. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/cpq2Gsrfuh
One of the things I love about Tulsi, is that she is data driven . She doesn't let "feelings" get in the way. Let us take a look a the data, and let us formulate an optimal solution.
Sounds logical no? And yet so few follow this approach. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/J82gHnz60b
Senator Warren if this is the only chance I have for your attn: it has been nearly impossible to believe in what you say you'll do for our indigenous Pacific Islander community w/ the real pain you've caused to the indigenous ppl here. That pain is shared. Know that. #AAPI2020 https://t.co/ogygWJIx1p
