They See Blue mentioned in a Washington Post story
K.S., who owns a software company, wrote a program that would allow him to extract all of the South Asian names from the state’s voter registration list. Initially, they focused on filtering for South Asian names in Chester County, where they live — and began calling and sending out postcards. In 2018, they worked to help elect Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.), flipping their home district from red to blue.
As word got out, the national organization They See Blue, which was founded in 2018 to get South Asians out to vote for progressive candidates, contacted them to ask if they wanted to collaborate on outreach. They then founded the organization’s Pennsylvania chapter, although K.S. emphasizes it’s still a grassroots effort with no formal structure. The most official programming they have, he said, is an annual picnic.
We apologize but due to unforeseen circumstances the All Hands Meeting featuring a Q&A with U.S. Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) has been postponed. We hope to reschedule the event as soon as possible and we will publicize it accordingly.
