Asian American Action Day 2017

Be a part of Asian American Action Day from Chicago! We are looking for volunteers to signal boost our rally in Springfield on Tuesday, May 17 between 10:00AM and 1:00PM.

Come build community power with hundreds of Asian American, immigrant, and refugee leaders from PAVE- Pan Asian Voter Empowerment Coalition at the annual Asian American Action Day in Springfield, IL! Along with thousands of Illinoisans, the Asian American and immigrant community has endured destructive budget cuts to essential programs, services, and wages. Other issues that leaders will talk to decision makers about include language access, Automatic Voter Registration, and the Domestic Worker Bill of Rights.

This Asian American Heritage Month, let's celebrate with action by rallying for solutions to issues impacting our community. Between 5:30am - 6am, there will be several bus pick up locations in Chicago and Chicago suburbs. Buses will arrive in Springfield between 9:30am - 10am. The day will start with a rally in the capitol rotunda, followed by meetings with legislators and tours of the capitol.

Please RSVP with us by emailing to be a part of this incredible annual event!
