Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are the fastest-growing racial group in the United States.  Despite the growing population, AAPIs are often underrepresented in political leadership and many have a limited understanding of our political process. In North Carolina, since 2012, the number of eligible AAPI voters grew by 55%, more than 6 times faster than the statewide growth rate.


About Us

Our Vision:

The Asian Pacific Islander Outreach (APIO) envisions a future where all Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and others in the North Carolina community, regardless of background, are actively engaged in shaping solutions to relevant issues through political engagement, protecting voting rights, recruitment of qualified candidates to run for political office and therefore, in the end, achieve prosperity and change in our society.   

Our Mission:

Our mission is to promote the enfranchisement and participation of Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and other voters in our democratic processes and thereby attain an equitable and just society, improving the lives of our community by connecting, learning, and acting together for the better good.

Our Purpose:

The main purpose of the organization is to educate Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) citizens and others in the North Carolina community of their legal and civil rights and how to exercise these rights, including how to register to vote, understand the importance of voting, and engage in the political process within the community.
