Description

The vision of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) is to "create productive and meaningful change in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities." Towards the accomplishment of this vision the President has appointed a fifteen-member Commission composed of AAPI leaders to advise him on three major goals: develop, monitor and coordinate federal efforts to improve Asian American and Pacific Islander participation in government programs; foster research and data collection for AAPI populations and sub-populations; and increase public and private sector and community involvement in improving the health and well-being of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). Visit this agency's web site to learn more about the activities and progress of the AAPI initiative.
