One of the most prevalent problems endured by the AAPI community is a lack of representation in government. AAPIs are America's fastest growing demographic, yet its least represented when it comes to holding elected office. Considering the scarcity of AAPI individuals in government, it is evident why many from this community feel disconnected from politics. According to the Reflective Democracy Campaign "AAPI people are under-represented in the political system by a factor of -85 percent", accounting for less than 1 percent of all elected leaders.
Communities that are underrepresented in government often do not have their voices heard or their concerns addressed. It Is for this reason, that the aim of AAPI Advocacy Alliance is to increase the representation of AAPI individuals in these spaces by empowering the next generation of leaders and equipping them with all the necessary tools to be successful in there future endeavors.
