Please join the Institute of Politics in person for a discussion regarding the rising role of the Asian American community in politics. Voter turnout among Asian Americans has jumped from 49.3% in 2014 to 59.5% in 2020. The community's turnout played a key role in swing states during the 2020 presidential election and in competitive congressional elections. At the same time, Asian Americans have also been increasingly targeted with hate crimes.
