Unity Through Inclusion – AAPI Representation and Equality –
Empowering Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) to work together to articulate their issues and apprehensions is the goal of this breakout session. It can be done by electing people who can speak about the issues and are also dedicated to public service. They not only speak about the concerns of the community but can also highlight the positive contributions of AAPI communities. With this goal in mind, of achieving representation and equality in treatment, AAPI communities want to dialogue how they can achieve their American dream of belonging to this land and full acceptance by mainstream America.
