Oakland, CA – Today, the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) was acknowledged by the California Commission on Asian and Pacific Islander American Affairs for working to advance the interests of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the state.
“I want to thank the Commission for continuing to elevate the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities across California,” said Roxanna Bautista, APIAHF senior director of engagement strategies. “Over the last 30 years, our organization has worked to ensure that our communities are represented in both state and national conversations – places where our voices have not always been fully represented. In fighting for health equity and political representation for all Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander families, this resolution inspires us to continue our progress forward.”
APIAHF staff received the resolution at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. The Commission recognizes selected organizations throughout the state that have demonstrated continued excellence and commitment to the advancement of the social, economic, health, education, and political advancement of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the state of California.
