APIA Representation Matters

APAPA Logo

Sacramento, CA The Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Association (APAPA) joins Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPIs), National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA), and many other APIA organizations to urge President-elect Joe Biden to honor his promise in assembling a diverse Cabinet and administration that truly reflects the race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, cultural background, ethnicities, etc., of our country.

The goals of the APAPA organization have been to promote civic engagement, leadership and the empowerment of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.  As a community, APIAs have made tremendous progress in promoting our talents to lead this great nation in diversity. We are profoundly disappointed by the lack of APIAs appointed to Cabinet Secretary positions for the incoming administration, despite President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to make his government “look like America.”  APIAs now account for seven percent of the U.S. population and are allegedly the most successful and the fastest growing ethnic group.  In the 2020 election, APIA voters turned out in record numbers.  In many key states, and particularly in Georgia, APIA votes represented the margin of the narrowly won Democratic victories in both the Presidential and the Senate races.

We hope President-elect Joe Biden will recognize the APIA voters’ efforts and contributions to his successful election and the Georgia election by rectifying the lack of APIA representation at the highest levels of his administration.
