About AAA-Fund — Virginia
The purpose of this organization shall be to promote the interests of Asian Americans in support of the Democratic Party and encourage participation of Asian Americans at all levels of the Democratic Party. Activities shall include voter registration, education, outreach, recruitment of members of local Democratic committees and endorsement of candidates for political office in Virginia.
In 2005, the AAA-Fund Virginia Chapter sponsored an Asian American fundraiser for Lt. Candidate Tim Kaine who was running for Governor. We also assisted in Asian American outreach for Tim Kaine for Governor, Leslie Byrne for Lt. Governor, and Creigh Deeds for Attorney General. The Virginia Chapter sponsored ads in Asian language newspapers and radio for these three at-large candidates and Democratic candidates for state delegate.
In 2006, the AAA-Fund Virginia Chapter participated in phone banking, literature drops and visibility events at Asian grocery stores. The AAA-Fund sponsored a full-page campaign ad for Jim Webb in a Korean Daily newspaper. The Virginia Chapter also helped arrange other campaign ads and newspaper articles.
From 2007 to the present, the AAA-Fund Virginia Chapter has been sponsoring happy hours in Arlington and planning voter registration and visibility events. For more information, contact Rose Chu at rccmason AT gmail.com or call 703 998-5539h.
