APA VOICE members display the candidate surveys at a press conference held on Friday, June 22

The MinKwon Center, as part of the APA VOICE coalition, recently completed candidate surveys for candidates in the 5th, 12th, and 14th Congressional Districts in preparation for the Tuesday, June 26 New York Federal Primaries. Asian Pacific Americans Voting and Organizing to Increase Civic Engagement (APA VOICE), a coalition of 19 APA organizations in New York City led by the MinKwon Center, gathered survey responses from candidates in the 5th, 12th, and 14th Congressional Districts in preparation for the Tuesday, June 26 New York Federal Primaries. APA VOICE conducted the survey this month to increase voter awareness on topics relevant to the Asian Pacific American community, including immigration, the 2020 Census, gun control, education, and healthcare. 

The survey results are available in English, Korean, Chinese, and Bangla and can play a critical role in educating Asian Pacific Americans, and particularly those who are limited English proficient, about the candidates running in the primary election. Because of lopsided party registration numbers, the primary elections are sometimes regarded as the “real” election in New York City, and it is important for the Asian Pacific American community members to stay informed about the candidates. The districts were chosen based on the highest concentration of Asian Americans in the district: the 5th District is 13 percent Asian, the 12th District is 11.6 percent Asian, and the 14th District is 16.5 percent Asian.
