Many Cultures, One Voice

The increasing presence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States is a testament to the rich diversity and cultural vibrancy they bring to the nation. As the fastest-growing racial group, their contributions to various facets of American life continue to shape and enrich our society. Despite our growing population, it is evident that AAPIs face challenges in achieving equitable political representation. The underrepresentation of AAPIs in political leadership roles raises concerns about the need for greater inclusivity and participation in the democratic process. ​In North Carolina, a remarkable growth rate of eligible AAPI voters since 2012 highlights the community's willingness to engage and participate in shaping the future of their state and country. This increase in political engagement serves as a beacon of hope, emphasizing the significance of recognizing and empowering the voices of diverse communities within the larger political landscape. The phrase "Many Cultures, One Voice" underscores the importance of embracing and celebrating the multitude of cultures that comprise the AAPI community. By fostering a climate of understanding, respect, and inclusivity, we can create a society where every individual's voice is heard and valued. As we move forward, let us strive to bridge the gap in political representation, ensuring that AAPIs and all underrepresented communities have an active role in shaping policies that affect their lives. By embracing the diversity that enriches our nation, we can build a stronger, more inclusive democracy that honors the principle of "Many Cultures, One Voice."


Our Vision:

We envision a North Carolina community where every individual, regardless of their background, stands as an active participant in shaping solutions to the pressing issues we face. We strive for a society where all Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and others are engaged in political discourse, safeguarding voting rights, and fostering the recruitment of qualified candidates for political office. Through these collective efforts, we aspire to achieve prosperity and drive meaningful change in our society.

Our Mission:

Asian Pacific Islander Outreach (APIO) is dedicated to a mission that centers on the enfranchisement and participation of Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and other voters in our democratic processes. Our goal is to build an equitable and just society where the lives of our community members are uplifted. We believe that true progress stems from fostering connections, facilitating learning opportunities, and inspiring collaborative action for the greater good.

Our Purpose:

Central to our organization's purpose is the education of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) citizens and others in the North Carolina community. We are committed to equipping individuals with knowledge about their legal and civil rights, empowering them to exercise these rights effectively. This includes educating individuals on voter registration, cultivating an understanding of the importance of voting, and encouraging active engagement in the political process within our community.


Through our collective efforts, Asian Pacific Islander Outreach (APIO)  seeks to create an environment where every voice is heard, every vote is counted, and every individual is empowered to drive positive change. Together, we can build a future that embraces diversity, fosters inclusivity, and brings about the transformative impact our community deserves
