Join us for the 2019 Celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Members of the 116th Congress on January 15.  This event is free to the public but you must RSVP below. We expect 500+ community leaders to attend and we expect the majority of the AAPI Congressional members to participate. It was started in 2015 and APIAVote is helping keep the tradition alive by spearheading the effort once again this year. You can view the photos from the 2017 celebration here.
