Engaging the AA&NHOPI Vote at Community Health Centers

AAPCHO’s Engaging the AA&NHOPI Vote at Community Health Centers project is a national non-partisan voter engagement initiative designed to establish ongoing civic engagement efforts at health centers primarily serving medically underserved Asian Americans & Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHOPIs). This initiative is not just a voter registration drive but the initial phase of an ongoing effort to increase the overall civic engagement of medically underserved AA&NHOPIs. Learn more about AAPCHO’s current Policy Initiatives.

Engage voters broadly by conducting activities relating to four categories: voter registration, voter education, voter protection and Get Out the Vote (GOTV). By engaging in these four activities, AAPCHO and its partners aim to improve and develop best practices for overall civic engagement and participation of medically underserved and disenfranchised AA&NHOPIs.
