Asian Americans have seen what is perhaps the fastest and most dramatic increases in their population in the past ten years. Despite this, and despite a spike in the number of Asian Americans running for elected office, Asian American political participation continues to lag behind that of other groups. To help change this, TAP invites you to a voter registration drive with OCA New York at this year’s Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival – making for a day of arts, entertainment and fun!

This year’s festivities feature a host of exciting events including martial arts, a “steel orchestra,” and of course, the final intense dragon boat race. We’ll be enjoying everything the festival has to offer, and will also work with advocacy specialty organization OCA to register Asian American voters. Be a part of a greater movement to educate and empower our community politically and make sure our voices are heard on key issues like immigration, education, and healthcare.
