The letter, addressed to WHIAANHPI co-chairs Secretary Xavier Becerra and Ambassador Katherine Tai, thanks the Commission for taking significant steps to increase the attention needed for the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities.
From the letter:
We especially appreciate the recent national strategy’s focus on combatting anti-Asian hate and discrimination, disaggregating data on AA and NHPI communities, and expanding career development and advancement opportunities in the federal government. These priorities reflect Committee of 100’s key initiatives, and we are grateful to see our government working toward the same goals.
