“Our members have worked tirelessly for their voices to be heard this election cycle and we will not let intimidation or litigation steal our power,” said LaDon Love, Executive Director of SPACEs in Action. “Our people are saving this democracy and we will not be silent.”
“My members in Pennsylvania link arms with voters from Arizona to Georgia to demand justice,” said Gustavo Torres, President of CASA in Action. “We transformed the vote in Southern PA and we want Donald Trump to hear that the very people he hates so much are those that delivered the vote to kick him out of the White House.”
“There are still millions of ballots uncounted, due to part of the high voter enthusiasm of Asian Americans who wanted to vote safely and securely in the midst of a public health pandemic. Included in those votes are Asian Americans from Pennsylvania who the NAKASEC Action Fund mobilized. Each ballot represents a voice and a decision, and each ballot must be counted,” said Sookyung Oh, NAKASEC Action Fund.
“The only way we protect our democracy is to count every vote. The votes and voices of more than 72 million people have been counted so far – the most from any presidential candidate in American history. These voters are demanding a more just and equitable nation. We are demanding an end to the racism, hate and anti-immigration policies at the core of Trumpism that the GOP supported. We will be patient so election officials can count each and every vote accurately, but we will also be vigilant and ready to defend the vision and rights of all of those who voted for change,” said Sulma Arias, director of immigrant rights for Community Change Action and FIRM Action.
