Our Mission

KAYA is a movement. We believe in the power of civic engagement to create positive change in our community.

KAYA’s volunteers, donors, and community partners work together to build partnerships to increase Filipino American electoral representation, advocate for policies that benefit our community, and promote and develop progressive leaders to represent our community at every level of government.

KAYA is about making an impact. You can give voice to what you care about in the community. It starts by getting involved.

Join the movement.
