Asian Democrats form multi-million-dollar super PAC to engage and win over AAPI voters

  • AAPI Democrats have formed Justice Unites Us, a super PAC (Political Action Committee) set to engage “AAPI voters and community leaders in order to increase turnout and drive up support for endorsed candidates.”
  • Super PACs are “committees that may receive unlimited contributions from individuals, corporations, labor unions and other PACs for the purpose of financing independent expenditures and other independent political activity,” according to the Federal Elections Commission.
  • Justice Unites Us told NBC that it has spent $850,000 this year so far and is set to spend much more in key states with pivotal Senate races, such as Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada.
  • Following a record turnout in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, AAPI voters are now recognized as a political force; however, engaging them remains a challenge.
  • Democratic National Committee member and Justice Unites Us co-chair Lindy Li noted that Democrats must now “make these types of targeted investments that could be the game-changer in races that will ultimately be won in the margins.”

Asian American members of the Democratic party are launching a multi-million-dollar effort to win Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) voters across the U.S.
