    The political future of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in California will be importantly shaped by the redrawing of legislative districts following the 2010 Census. The commissioners will be responsible for drawing the districts for the State Assembly, Senate and Board of Equalization. Currently less than 4% of applicants are AAPIs. We need to push for more diversity int he applicants. Unless significant numbers of AAPIs apply, our communities could be left without and representation. Please join us to learn more about the redistricting commission process. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to influence our political future.
