"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC). My district has strong and active Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and I’m proud to represent them as one of the newest CAPAC members.
“I look forward to working with my peers on the caucus to continue addressing the unique issues facing the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and to ensure their voices are heard."
Washington State’s 9th district is home to more than 60,000 Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders and people of Asian descent. Thirty-three percent of the foreign languages spoken by residents of the 9th district are Asian Pacific.
The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus is comprised of Members of Congress of Asian and Pacific Islander descent and members who have a strong dedication to promoting the well-being of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
