Lifting up all voices in metro Detroit, including Michigan’s Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, for the 2018 midterm election – MI Asian

“It is so important that all voices are lifted up in our democracy, and that includes Asian American voters,” said Michigan Representative and Democratic state Senate candidate for District 1 Stephanie Chang. “There is so much at stake in the 2018 elections — from immigrants’ rights to an economy that works for everyone — Asian American voters should have a say in who will serve us in our representative democracy.”
