Women’s Collective

Tools & Resources

We honor the AAPI women in government who blazed the trail and we celebrate the AAPI women electeds who are making history every day. The 2020 elections brought many victories and "firsts" for AAPI women running for public office and subsequently for AAPI communities across the nation. Now in 2021, women comprise a majority of the AAPI members of the 117th Congress. 3 Congresswomen are the first Korean American women to serve in Congress. Vice President Kamala Harris is the first Asian and Black woman to serve as Vice President of the United States. We are excited for these victories to inspire and encourage more and more AAPI women to run for all levels of across and thus build a stronger and more reflective democracy.
