APIs coming together

Congressman David Wu speaks at the APIAVote reception. He is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives for Oregon, representing the state’s First Congressional District.

On Sept. 1 APIAVote celebrated Asian American and Pacific Islander achievements and participation in the electoral and political process at a reception that jumpstarted the Republican National Convention in Washington, D.C. API leaders were invited to attend and provide welcoming remarks for the guests. Tamlyn Tomita was the emcee for the events’ festivities.

APIAVote is a national nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that envisions a society in which all APIs fully participate in, and have access to, the electoral process. APIAVote is based in Washington, D.C. ♦
