Election Equity & Civil Rights: N.C. Nonprofit Works to Bridge Language Gaps in Asian American Communities

Articles Nov 2, 2022

The right to vote is one of Americans’ most cherished rights, but many citizens are denied that right because of cultural differences and language barriers. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are one of the fastest growing demographic groups in the U.S., yet many can’t access basic election information.

In North Carolina, one nonprofit is working to bridge language barriers in pan-Asian communities across the state to ensure that more citizens have the ability to pick their representatives, choose how they are taxed, and decide how they are governed.
