Thanks to White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for including FAPAC in this event! Good to see some of our members join in the celebration of two Korean American Congresswomen-elect Young Kim and Michelle Steel 🇺🇸

On December 16th, WHIAAPI celebrated the historic win of Congresswoman-Elect Michelle Steel and Congresswoman-Elect Young Kim, with a very special guest, Co-Chair of WHIAAPI, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao. Steel and Kim are two of the first three Korean American women ever elected to the U.S. Congress. Each of our speakers spoke on the need for more AAPI representation in the U.S. federal government, mentoring the next generation of leaders and the importance of public service. Secretary Chao, Congresswoman-Elect Steel and Congresswoman-Elect Kim each shared with us their inspiring stories and the lessons they learned along the way.

The event was also joined by former Deputy Director of the The White House Office of Management and Budget, Derek Kan; U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, Robert Hur; Assistant Administrator of the Office of Women’s Business Ownership at U.S. SBA, Sery Kim; Senior Counsel at the U.S. Department of Commerce Office of the Secretary and PAC-AAPI Commissioner, George Leing; and Executive Director of WHIAAPI, Tina Wei Smith.

The COVID-19 outbreak continues to have far-reaching health and economic consequences for the American public. Although coronavirus infects people regardless of our race and ethnicity, COVID-19 death rates are disproportionately higher in people of color, including Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs). According to Pew Research Center, about four-in-ten African American and Asian adults say people have acted as if they were uncomfortable around them because of their race or ethnicity since the beginning of the outbreak. In a nation experiencing the growing health inequity during the COVID-19 pandemic, what can the AAPI community do to work with all other communities and address this public health crisis together? This meeting brings together leading public health experts from various communities to share experience and lessons learned in addressing the gaps among underserved and vulnerable communities, and to unite all Americans to fight the root cause of health inequities.

Featured Speakers:
Dr. Monica Webb Hooper, Deputy Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, NIH

Dr. Howard Koh, 14th Assistant Secretary for Health, Harvey V. Fineberg Professor of the Practice of Public Health Leadership, Harvard University

Dr. Yvonne Maddox, Former Vice President for Research, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Former Acting Deputy Director, NIH

We're thankful for public servants like Peter Tsai, inventor of the N95 masks, who has come out of retirement to volunteer his expertise during the coronavirus pandemic. Read his story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2020/07/07/peter-tsai-n95-mask-covid/

Peter Tsai, the inventor of N95 masks, has been hailed a national hero. When confronted with COVID-19, the dedication to his country compelled him to leave retirement to help solve the N95 mask shortage.

“This is an opportunity for me to contribute to the community,” Tsai said. “If I can do this, it will be a good memory for the rest of my life.”
