By August 15, 2011, the boundaries of California’s legislative and Congressional districts will be redrawn by the new Redistricting Commission.  In 2008, California voters took  the power to redraw districts away from legislators and gave it to a new, independent commission. With data from the 2010 Census, the Commission could draw districts that divide Asian American/Pacific Islander communities.  Or the Commission can put or keep our communities in common districts that build our political influence and the ability to elect candidates of our choice.

Please join us at the Commission’s only hearings in central Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley.  AAPIs are now 14% in both Los Angeles County and the state but we must show a strong presence to have a powerful voice.

CAPAFR includes representatives of organizations from the Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino, Guamanian/Chamorro, Japanese, Korean, Samoan. Thai and Tongan communities.
