Privacy Policy

Effective date / last updated: Oct 18, 2020

 

THEY SEE BLUE

 

They See Blue's mission is to mobilize and engage Americans of South Asian (Afghan, Bangladeshi, Bhutanese, Indian, Indo-Fijian, Indo-Caribbean, Maldivian, Nepali, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Diaspora) origin in the democratic process to help Democrats win federal, state, and local races. 

 

We’re taking the momentum from 2018 and replicating our playbook nationally for the November 2020 Elections and beyond. Our goal is to have TSB chapters in all states with a large South Asian population and mobilize South Asian voters in battleground states to ensure Democratic control of the White House, the Senate, and the House. 

 

This website and associated tools, such as the voter registration platform, is owned and operated by They See Blue and we have a firm commitment to your privacy and Internet privacy in general.
