Voters Education and Candidates Forum

The Voters Education & Candidates Forum takes the steadfast commitment, detailed planning, and hard work of numerous volunteers in APAPA's Forum Committee and Sub-Committees. All our volunteers are sincerely dedicated to the advancement, empowerment, and equal rights of all Americans, including Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Americans. The Chair of the Forum Committee is Charlotte Danielsson-Chang.

We hope this forum raises public awareness, increases participation in the democratic process, and encourages members of the community to involve themselves in public service. We would like to thank our many supporters and sponsors who share these goals. There are too many to sponsors to list everyone here, but they have included Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Comcast, Vision New America Inc., Wal-Mart, AT&T, Allstate Insurance, Andrew K.C. Wong, and many more.
