Ohio AAPI Legislative Day

Every spring, ASIA hosts AAPI Advocacy Day in Columbus, OH for advocacy, civic engagement, and education among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Multiple organizations from across Ohio partner with us to meet with elected officials and raise awareness of AAPI voters’ concerns. Senior citizens, students, activists, and community organizers come together to support legislation that expands health and socioeconomic equity as well as inclusivity in Ohio. Activities include legislator visits, guest speakers, and free lunch. Transportation from Akron or Cleveland to Columbus is provided.
