Because of your support, CAPA21 reached our $100,000 campaign goal for candidates and field activities through our Asian Americans #TakeItBack campaign!

Together we helped Asian Americans play a strong role in trying to stop the most corrupt, racist and ignorant president we have known. We must take back our Congress to reverse this current developing culture of violence against the marginalized, anti-immigration laws, hate crimes, wrongful incarceration, wealth inequality, discrimination, and environmental degradation.

This post includes a listing of our donations to candidates and information about the field activities we supported. We also include a list of contributors who made our Asian Americans #TakeItBack campaign a success. We donated as much of the funds we received as possible in the short time frame before November 6, but will use any remaining funds to continue to restore a Congress willing to resist the destruction of our Democracy.

On behalf of CAPA21 PAC Chair Glen S. Fukushima and campaign partner Hoyt Zia, thank you for your incredible support.

Dale Minami
President, CAPA21 PAC

PS – Make a donation today to provide future support for CAPA21 in the next election cycle so that we can continue our efforts to ensure that Asian Americans have a powerful presence and role in all branches and levels of government and politics, achieved through voters who are engaged, informed, and empowered.
