Join us in a fundraising campaign to make a difference in the 2020 races. The next elections will be pivotal in the direction of our country. We think that our friends are as outraged by Trump as we are and want to do something, but may not want to do the research as to where to send their money.
CAPA21 is a PAC whose roots go back over 30 years when many of us became more active politically in response to anti-Asian issues and candidates in California. Our focus then was mainly for the AAPI community in California but now our plan is to raise enough money to donate to
Our plan leading up to the 2020 general election which will be to raise enough money to donate to:
- Trump’s opponent in the Presidential race (and Independent Expenditures opposing Trump),
- Winnable candidates in Swing Senate States,
- Winnable candidates in Swing Congressional Districts, and
- Support voter registration and GOTV activities.
Last year we raised $100,000 which helped swing 8 seats in the 2018 General Election to turn Congress back to blue. This year, Glen S. Fukushima, CAPA21’s Chair, pledged $125,000 toward matching funds, inspiring fellow NAPABA members Hoyt Zia, Clement Kong, Joan Haratani, Raymond L. Ocampo Jr., and Don Tamaki to commit $10,000 each. David Louie, Colbert Matsumoto, Kei-on and Sonia Chan, Louise Ing and Dale Minami pledged $5,000 each. Mona Lisa Yuchengco gave $3,000 and Maeley Tom and Ginger Lew pledged $1,000 each–for a total matching amount of $77,000.
So please let us know if you will help lead this fight. We know our future as a country depends on not giving up hope, taking action and not allowing silence to become complicity.
