AAMPLIFY envisions a country where Asian American leaders are proportionately represented in law and government
We empower Asian American youth to become social justice leaders. By helping them recognize their leadership potential and ability to change the world, we give a voice to the needs of our community.
Together, our voices are amplified.
Asian Americans are in a unique position
at this time in our country
We are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. Our population is expected to more than double by 2060.
But we lack quality engagement from political parties and face barriers to the ballot box. Only 49% voted in the 2016 election.
There are only 20 Asian American and/or Pacific Islander representatives in Congress (3.8% of total membership), advocating for the needs of 23 million Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.
It's now more important than ever that we engage in effective policy change and advocate for our needs
AAMPLIFY seeks to empower Asian American youth to become the next generation of social justice leaders to speak up and advocate for our needs. By empowering students in their identities and strengthening their confidence as leaders, we begin to address unique Asian American needs and stand up for civil rights and economic opportunity in our communities.
