Hillary Clinton traveled to San Gabriel, California, on January 7, 2016, to launch Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) for Hillary.
Clinton joined Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) Chairwoman Judy Chu and dozens of AAPI elected officials and community leaders from across the nation. Clinton discussed what’s at stake in this election for the AAPI community, and how she’ll fight for them as president.
Hillary Clinton began her remarks with a personal anecdote about what the San Gabriel Valley region means to her, sharing that her mother grew up in nearby Alhambra.
Other speakers and dignitaries included Norm Mineta, John Chiang, San Gabriel Mayor Jason Pu, actress Ming-Na Wen, Olympian Michelle Kwan, and more.
The launch of AAPI for Hillary kicks off a number of events and activities that will engage, energize and organize AAPI voters.
