Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta Urges Asian Americans to Get Out the Vote

Make your voices be heard in Georgia


Atlanta, Georgia, October 30, 2015 — ATLANTA, Georgia – Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta has been actively engaging Asian American communities in Georgia for this November’s election through door-to-door canvassing, phone banking, voter registration drives, automated telephone calls, outreach events, community dinners, and a free hotline for election-related help or concerns on Election Day, next Tuesday, November 3, in Korean, Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, and English. Advancing Justice- Atlanta is urging all registered Asian American voters to vote this November 3rd in their city elections.

“City elections are just as important, if not more important, than high-profile elections like next year’s Presidential. Our City Council members and Mayors decide our property tax rates, keep our local police accountable, and decide crucial zoning issues that directly affect you and me. Your vote is your voice. Exercise your right to vote next Tuesday, November 3rd!” said, Raymond Partolan, Program Coordinator at Advancing Justice- Atlanta
