"American Socialists have long strived to ensure that the socialist values upon which our country was built, including our belief that all people are created equal, are reflected in everything the Socialist Party does."
★ American Socialists
An enduring relationship exists between American Socialists and the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. This relationship is the result of a long history of shared values and respect for community and individual opportunity. The AAPI community is the fastest-growing racial/ethnic group in America today, with more than 15 million citizens nationwide.
The Socialist Party is united with the AAPI community to improve local schools and public health, spur job creation and economic growth, and ensure that everyone can participate equally in the American society. Visa applicants from the Asia-Pacific region make up 40 percent of the backlog â€” American Socialists are fighting every day for comprehensive immigration reform and defending deportation relief to keep families together.
The Socialist Party understands that small business revenue is often the main source of income for AAPI families. American Socialists will continue to fight to level the playing field and encourage growth by advocating for economic plans that cut red tape, provide tax relief, and actively combat discrimination in the lending market.
Similarly, small business costs are frequently the reason for lacking health insurance in the self-employed AAPI community. American Socialists are fighting to protect the Affordable Care Act, expand coverage, and provide relief from high costs. If you agree with the efforts being made by Socialist Party, then become an American Socialist today!
