Supporting the WHIAAPIs
President Obama has demonstrated his commitment to the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander (AA&NHOPI) community by signing an Executive Order to establish a President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, as well as a White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The Initiative and the Commission will examine federal programs for areas in which AA&NHOPIs have been underserved, and improving the lives of AA&NHOPIs through increased participation in those programs.
AAPCHO urges our supporters, partners, and members to answer the President’s call to action and participate in this process by providing comment once the Commission calls for public input. AAPCHO will be issuing more information on these opportunities as they become available. Join us in our effort to increasing participation of AA&NHOPI in federal programs.
