New Facebook ads tell voters which lawmakers voted against denouncing Asian racism
Oct 21, 2020 1 min, 21 secs

ASPIRE PAC is running a series of Facebook ads in the districts of several GOP lawmakers who voted against a House resolution to denounce attacks directed toward Asian Americans.

Grace Meng, D-N.Y., chair of the committee and main sponsor of the resolution, told NBC Asian America that she feels it’s critical information for voters to have.

“I think it's important, as with any issue, that constituents know how their members of Congress vote on issues that are important to them,” Meng said.

“I felt like some of these Republican members took our Asian American constituents, or their constituents, for granted.

Meng said that the group chose to specifically target districts with large enough Asian American and Pacific Islander populations to make a difference in races there.

Meng said the comments felt like a “slap in the face.”.

She said that she’s encountered many individuals who did not know how their representative had voted on the issue and felt it was important information to reveal, particularly as many of them are making the issue of race a priority in the election.

“At the end of the day, we believe that the message of refusing to denounce hate will not only resonate with Asian Americans, but with anyone who believes in condemning race, intolerance and violence,” Meng said.

While House Democrats were united in their support for the resolution, Meng said that the issue isn’t necessarily a political one.

She said in the past she’s “seen Republicans do outreach to Asian American voters, while at the same time voting against meaningful legislation to our communities like this resolution
