WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), an associate member of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), applauded the news that the White House has developed the first-ever national strategy to advance equity, justice, and opportunity for Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities. This strategy includes national investments in initiatives to expand language access, increase opportunities, and combat anti-Asian hate.
“After seeing an alarming surge in racist and violent attacks against Asian Americans in recent years, I applaud the creation of this much-needed national strategy,” said Senator Rosen. “By promoting equity, increasing access to opportunities, and combating anti-Asian hate, we can support and strengthen AANHPI communities in Nevada and across our nation. I look forward to working with the Administration to meet the goals of this strategy.”
Nevada is home to one of the nation’s fastest-growing AANHPI populations. In the Senate, Senator Rosen has worked to support and protect AANHPI communities in Nevada and across the United States. She co-sponsored the bipartisan COVID-19 Hate Crimes Law to address the rise of hate crimes and violence targeted at members of the AANHPI community. Senator Rosen has also worked closely with the AANHPI community in Nevada to address the issues that are most important to them.
