Our priorities for donations to progressive candidates are: (1) Presidential, U.S. Senate and U.S. House candidates who advance AAPI interests; and (2) California state-level candidates who advance AAPI interests and are qualified and well-positioned for higher office.
We will generally refrain from donating to non-federal candidates from other states, except AAPI candidates whose election would be groundbreaking for AAPIs, or who we believe to have a significant role to play in advancing AAPI interests nationally.
We will generally refrain from donating to California municipal-level candidates, except those who advance AAPI interests, are well-positioned for higher office, and at least one of the following: (a) belong to an under-represented AAPI community (e.g. Filipino, Korean, Vietnamese, South Asian), or (b) are AAPI running in a low-AAPI district/area.
All candidates requesting support from CAPA21 are required to complete a candidate questionnaire, which is available online.
PLEASE NOTE: The online form does not save your responses in draft mode, so we recommend you draft your answers and paste them in the form before submitting.
