Chairman Xavier Becerra On Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

May 1, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement to commemorate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month:

“Among many achievements, Asian Pacific Americans have served honorably in uniform, grown our economy through entrepreneurship, and served our country at the highest levels of government. Throughout our history, this diverse community has also been instrumental in the struggle to ensure justice and equality for all Americans. In Los Angeles, we see this rich heritage in the vibrant Asian Pacific American communities of Chinatown, Historic Filipinotown, Koreatown, Little Bangladesh and Little Tokyo. I am proud to join my colleagues in celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and honoring our fellow Americans who continue contributing to our country’s success.”
