Community Conversation: Qasim Rashid, U.S. Congressional Candidate in VA-1 (D)
August 5, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
During the month of August, We Are AAPI is highlighting AAPI Democratic candidates running for office in battleground states and districts. 2020 is an unprecedented election cycle and we believe the AAPI community can play a crucial role in supporting these trailblazing leaders on their way to making history.
Our inaugural candidate conversation is with Qasim Rashid, VA-1 Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress, who has already made history as the the first American Muslim in Virginia history to win a Congressional primary election. Join us to discuss his candidacy, major issues on his platform, and why the AAPI vote is important in 2020 and beyond.
