WASHINGTON, DC—Following President Obama’s State of the Union address, Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-32), Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) responded on behalf of the group.
“As Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), I commend President Obama on his continued efforts to improve the lives of all Americans – not just the privileged elite.
“The notion that everyone deserves a fair shot if they’re willing to do their fair share is a core American value and one that resonates strongly within the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. CAPAC appreciates the fact that we have a true partner in President Obama, and we look forward to working with the White House to create an American economy that’s first in the world and built to last.”
The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) 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 (AAPI) community. Currently Chaired by Congresswoman Judy Chu, CAPAC has been addressing the needs of the AAPI community in all areas of American life since it was founded in 1994.
