With election season coming up, the Asian American community’s votes are important now more than ever as the amount of APIDA voters increases every year. A strategy that targets the Asian American community served to be quite beneficial as it pushed Democrat Tom Suozzi into winning New York’s 3rd Congressional District race.

Recently, there has been an influx of acronyms used to group different demographics of people under one umbrella term. The Asian American community has especially experienced this, ranging from AAPI to APIDA and more. While these terms are created under the pretense of inclusion, there is still work to be done in digging beyond language to understand its meaning and intention.
