Group targets Gwinnett’s Asian voters

The Asian American Legal Advocacy Center this week unveiled a billboard urging immigrants in Gwinnett County to vote.

The organization’s first “Vote For Our Future” billboard is on I-85 between Beaver Ruin Road and Steve Reynolds Boulevard. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Gwinnett County is home to more than 86,000 Asian Americans – about 11 percent of the county’s population.

In a statement announcing the billboard campaign, Executive Director Helen Ho said AALAC “wants to remind our community members to take greater ownership of where they live by exercising their right to vote.”
