Established in 2011, Chinese Progressive Political Action (CPPA) is a 501c4 organization focused on building the collective political power of the Chinese community as part of our struggle for full equality. We integrate grassroots organizing and civic action to promote the community's agenda before, during, and after elections.
This year, CPPA:
~ Launched a citywide political project with our allies called Right to the City Vote, which is leading the effort to unify and build power for communities of color, engaging voters in Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, East Boston, South Boston and South End.
~ Worked with community residents and allies from Right to the City Vote to develop a common issue platform focused on our rights to, "Remain, Reclaim, Rebuild Boston."
~ Sent platform and questionnaires to all 61 municipal candidates, endorsing and working for John Barros in the mayoral preliminary, Marty Walsh in the finals, and Ayanna Pressley and Suzanne Lee for city council.
~ Made more than 9,311 contacts to 2,158 voters this year, completing over 5,880 door knocks, 2,937 phone calls, and engaging 956 individuals to sign onto our platform.
~ Held 20 voter education workshops and organized 16 resident activist teams at affordable housing developments in Chinatown, South End, and South Boston.
~ Cosponsored two citywide mayoral candidate forums and one district council town meeting that focused on the issues of jobs, land, and housing.
~ Registered 151 new voters through collaborative efforts with Chinese Progressive Association.
~ Increased voter turnout by 37 percent in Chinatown's two precincts over the last mayoral election.
