Stories from the Field: San Diego Asian Pacific Islanders Prepare to Vote No on 32

Two weeks before the November 6 election, nearly 50 Asian Pacific Islander (API) labor leaders and activists, including homecare providers represented by the United Domestic Workers (UDW), healthcare workers represented by SEIU and representatives from the local community organization Center for Policy Initiatives (CPI), gathered together at the Laborer’s union hall in San Diego.  This diverse group, with heavy representation from San Diego’s Filipino and Vietnamese communities, came together for an API Speakers Bureau Training, hosted by the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA) and the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) Action, in order to prepare for the role of spokespersons for the “No on Proposition 32” campaign.
