A group of Desi-American activists don signs of welcome to immigrants

In New Jersey, the number of voters with roots in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other Asian countries is growing six times faster than the general voting population. Yet, despite the potential for more power at the ballot box, longtime divisions are surfacing over religion, economic status and country of origin.

In the latest episode of A Better Life?, journalist Sabeena Singhani – Feet in 2 Worlds’ 2020 Election Fellow – examines the increasingly complex political landscape in her home state, just days before Election Day 2020.

A Better Life? is a ten-part series about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on immigrants across the U.S. Read more about the series here.
