Sue Van’s Speech at Asian American Leadership Summit 2018

Sue Van, Wallace H. Coulter Foundation’s CEO spoke at the 2018 Asian American & Pacific Islander Leadership Summit in Washington D.C., jointly hosted by CLUSA and APIAVote. She also emphasized the importance of representation, especially in office. Sue Van said that “we’ve always had a voice, and we do have influence.” Within the last few elections, there has been an increase in the number of Asian-Americans in the House of Representatives and the Senate. By increasing the level of civic engagement within communities, more Asian Americans will be inclined to run for office and not only maintain that representation when the current members step down, but increase the percentage of Asian Americans in office.
