"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. Many groups can claim credit for flipping Georgia blue. But here's one statistic. The number of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in Georgia who voted in this year's election was nearly double compared to 2016. So how did that happen? I sure Yakub Mac Mood is with the Progressive Asian American advocacy fund in Georgia, and she points to five counties around Atlanta that saw the bulk of the participation that included her home county of Gwinnett, Gwinnett County in 2016 became a majority minority county and flipped for the first time to elect a Democratic president with Hillary Clinton. Yes, In 2016. We had an all white All Republican County Commission and all white All Republicans School board fast forward to 2020. We now have an all democratic all people of color County Commission and a majority people of color school board and going out so you can see just the demographic shifts but also the political shifts that are really in part due to the work of organizing. Well, let's talk about that organization because you did a lot of work leading up to the election. Asian Americans first We should say our divers right so so economically in regards to religion, country of origin, But they did vote overwhelmingly Democratic this election. Why what issues mattered to them? Covert and covert relief was at top of mind for a lot of our families, as was health care. It was apparent that this year was the year for health care to be the top issue for our families, because we knew how the lack of health care has come to impact our communities. Education continues to be at the forefront just how expensive it is to access public education and public universities these days. But honestly, our our communities also care very deeply about immigration reform, making sure that they can support their families who still want to come to this country through family based immigration. We talk a lot about what it means for our communities because of the increased immigration enforcement with the Trump Administration and what could change with a new presidency. Me ask you. This Indian Americans are the largest Asian American group in Georgia. Was Kamila Harris, a factor in turning them out? Definitely. I have spoken to so many Indian American community members who were You know they were already motivated and already excited about this election cycle, but it definitely motivated them to do more and to be more loud and to be more proud of supporting a democratic ticket, and for a lot of people who maybe were on the fence about Trump or Biden. It really helped to tip the scales in Biden's favor. What was the playbook for how to reach voters that traditionally had really not been engaged in politics. Our playbook wasn't just the work that we did in 2020. But it's years of organizing in our communities. As you know, within such a diverse Asian American community. We can't just have one AP I organizer and call it a day. We have to have very specific ethnic organizer's that are doing the very important and very specific organizing necessary for some of these communities. So what that looked like was having you know, a Korean organizer talked to Korean elders or having AH younger Korean organizer talked to younger generation Korean Americans and really replicating that for each community and language. Sure, I mean languages. Access is always a big thing for us. So you know, we're really glad that a lot of campaigns are finally starting to think about language access. But it also goes beyond that. We also make sure that Reaches available in language when we're knocking on doors or talking to voters on the phone that we have in language volunteers and staff, making those calls but also having two way communication toe. Let voters know that they can always reach back out to us if they have questions. So I guess the big question now is. How are you feeling about the Georgia Senate races is their enthusiasm. Will Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders turned out in a few weeks in the same way that they did in the presidential race? There's definitely enthusiasm still in our communities, but it's really important for us to keep that mo mentum up to make sure that people just don't get complacent and assume that because Georgia's blew that it will stay blue people are also tired. You know, Georgia became a battleground state very late in the cycle for some people, and so the last few weeks before the election were a lot for our people. They were getting calls and text messages and male almost every day and that has just picked right back up since the run off so Not only are we dealing with logistical challenges with the holidays, but we're also dealing with some exhaustion with being contacted, But it will be on us to make sure that we can continue to do the outreach in the most effective way possible so that we can really drown out the other noise and talk to our voters in a way that resonates with them better. Aisha Yakub Mahmoud is the executive director of the Progressive Asian American Advocacy Fund. Thank you very much. Thank you so much for having me. The movie industry is recognizing that the pandemic will alter their business in 2021. Even his vaccines begin to spread..

"Free Talk Live the final segment. We might be able to squeeze your call them at eight five five four five zero three seven three three mark with you and nobody. That's eight fifty fifty five four hundred fifty free as in freedom. Got A story here from Gwinnett County Georgia man on his way to a job interview said officers used a Taser on him three times for Jaywalking. Police say he refused verbal commands and physically resisted. So this is an issue out there in the world and it's one that I don't have to deal with I'd Jay walk all the time. I look both ways. If there's not a car coming and ZIP across the street. I was doing in cities across America. And you know I try not to. I ah try very hard not to be a hindrance to those people. The I yield the right of way to the the the people that have the right of way from by my estimation and and I just get across the street. But there's this situation in the south that is claimed that black men have a heck of a time crossing streets without using the signals. And anybody who's had to across the street knows that walking down one hundred fifty feet to the light then crossing waiting for the the lights and then crossing there then coming back the hundred and fifty feet. It's a lot harder than just zip across the road when things are easier to do now I've never been a black man and I've never lived in Gwinnett Gwinnett county Georgia so I don't know what happened here but if I was the one I wouldn't do the other. I'm pretty sure that well. This all began in March when the officers gave John Effort. A jaywalking citation on Holcomb Bridge road. Gwinnett county efforts said that a couple of minutes later later the same officers approached him again saying that he walked again. He said that's when they refuse to answer. His question began teasing him. I I was terrified said effort. He was charged with two counts of obstruction and improper crossing of Roadway police said that Joan Sent Jones a use of force report report that indicated that the level of force used was within its policy. It said that effort refused to follow verbal commands physically resisted an officer. Bodycam cam video recorded the incident hands behind your back now custom. You'RE GONNA get teased again. The officer is heard in a video. So this guy is was on his way to a job application or job interview doesn't want to be hindered. I'm presuming the cams show what the police say because the DEMO I don't that's not really a safe assumption. Well I I. I don't know the idea of going after somebody a jaywalking. I mean what's the harm. And where's the victim. Yeah is what I want to know. If I'm walking down the side of the road and the police want to be a problem and I'm like Hey I don't WanNa talk to you right now and you can do that. You don't have to talk to a police officer simply because they want to talk to you. You can just keep on walking. But if they decide to say you committed a crime walking you're walking alongside the road J. Walking's and easy thing to claim mm-hmm right and in my case it would probably be true. I've J. walked probably most weeks of my adult life and it is a tried and true southern law enforcement technique they for example during the civil rights era. They started charging the activists with spitting on the sidewalk which was a law on the books but it never got in forest forest except for against civil rights activists and eventually there were cases for what's called misuse of process Because they they determined that this was being used just to harass civil rights demonstrators. Right I mean and the Civil Rights Rights movement actually did use Jaywalk. They walk in the middle of the road From one location to the other to sort of make their plight known. No N- Whatever the case is I don't think personally I don't like the sort of activism that impedes traffic so I wouldn't participate in that but jaywalking like you know what I say jaywalking? I mean not going to alight not waiting mm for a little command from a little light to cross the street and then you know taking the long basically taking the long way now. Now when I'm here in Keene New Hampshire. I know how these lights work. I know where they are. I get the timing I can look at it and I can see what's going on. I can I know how a traffic light it works. I know when cars are stopped. I can figure this out and I presume that the crosswalk buttons are for mothers with baby buggies and the geriatric. If you can't get across a street by looking at the lights and seeing which cars are stopped your mental invalid. There aren't mental invalids by all means. Let's have these lights for them. But I mean you know. Sometimes I park across the street from a restaurant. Because that's how parking works here in. Keene New Hampshire. Sure and I'm not going to go all the way down to the light. Two hundred hundred feet away to cross so they can walk at other two hundred feet back to the restaurant when I could just wait until no cars are doing anything and walk across the street tweet no crosswalk feed it. I don't need to stand in across smoke. Like a sanctimonious a whole demand that every car stop for my forward forward progress to me. It's just it's bad behavior but here in New Hampshire it's the whole drive with courtesy and there's was this big fine for not yielding to somebody in in a crosswalk and all that stuff of these. These pedestrians get so sanctimonious about it. I'd like just go. I can get past the car. Don't worry yeah well. The drivers irritate me too. Because I'll be Be Standing on the side of the road and they'll stop their car right. Just go. Well that's gotta be fear based right you're somewhere near the crosswalk so they they're trying to wave across. I don't want to cross the street. I'm standing here. I'll cross the street when thank you. It's social pressure based we got a caller. Yeah we got a caller. Let's go to Jim on from Florida. Joe You're on Free Talk Live what are we doing.

Throw beat Florida and You know after raising my kids kids and trying to figure out why I really wanted to do with my free time I decided I wanNA become libertarian. Ruby the world needs more of those. I'll tell you this. The Guy who used to manage the station group down there in Vero big. Jim Davis the Voice of W. O. R.. FM in Newark City. He is the one that gave Ian and I are sort of our break on radio. He's the one who put the show on the air for the first time on a little all thirty five hundred WATT FM in. Sarah actually the was licensed to Rotunda Florida and sometimes a good night. It would make it into Sarasota era soda and I I mean you know. The first night was a Sunday night from seven to eleven. which as you know as Siberia You know and we were all calls on a local station and they. They were delighted to have us in shortly. Were weeknights so Vero holds a special shoe place in my heart. Oh that's awesome. Yeah but You guys keep doing what you're doing. We appreciate it. I'm out here preaching the message. I'm you know in College College. I was Democrat after I had kids. I was Republican and now they've raised my kids. I'm a libertarian. So well one of the things we've done has as many of us have Many of the Libertarians. And I'm not saying you want to do this. I'm just telling people who might consider. It is is that We picked up and moved to New Hampshire. There are at this point five thousand free state project members and many others that have moved for the Great Freedom Migration for a variety of reasons.
