Rally Recap

Despite the large Asian population in Silicon Valley, Asians have a relatively low voter turnout. If we want more representation in politics, we need that to change.

 

By committing to the #8by8 challenge, you would get 8 of your friends, families, and acquaintances to register to vote within 8 days. By pushing the #8by8 challenge, we can #StopAsianHate.

Celebrate Asian History Month!

Bring awareness to Asian hate crime, in

conjunction with celebrating Asian Heritage month! Get ready to see exhibits by the

Stanford Arboretum Chinese Labor Quarters Project (ACLQ)showcasing the importance of Chinese Americans in the building of Stanford University, as well as other booths such as the Stanford Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project Exhibitvoter registration booths, and many more!
