Introduction

Trump and his extremist agenda of bigotry and backwardness threaten America and the health, well-being, and civil rights of our diverse communities. We need to vote out politicians who enable Trump's racist, xenophobic, misogynist, anti-science policies.

Who We Are

Asian Americans Against Trumpism is a political action committee fueled by volunteer power and community support. Our goal is to make a difference in electoral contests where Asian Americans are very likely to be the swing vote.

 
 

2018 Midterms

Changing control of the House of Representatives will stem the tide of Trumpism. Democrats need to take 24 new seats on November 6. The Asian American vote is absolutely critical in several swing districts.  

In California alone, Trump-enabling Republicans serve as the House incumbents in three congressional districts that voted for Clinton over Trump in 2016. In those districts, Asian Americans comprise 17-29% of the population!

For now, our committee is focused on creating and running Asian language ads in these districts because politics as usual often neglects Asian American voters. Many members of this community have limited English proficiency and rely on ethnic media for their political information. This is the gap we can fill.

Fundraising Goals

Our initial goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of September. This will allow us to have a meaningful presence in Asian language media in our target districts throughout October and until election day on November 6th.

We have also set a few stretch goals. If we meet these, we will increase our advertising buys to have more impact, and add additional support to grassroots efforts.  

As an independent expenditure-only committee, we can not donate to or coordinate with any candidates.
