Do you know how many members in Congress are AAPI? We have one out of 100 in the Senate, and 12 in the House out of 433 Representatives, five delegates, and one resident commissioner. We are 5.3% of the U.S. population, but that number is not reflected in our federal government.
41 Members of Congress have dedicated themselves to advocating for the needs and concerns of the Asian American Pacific Islander community as part of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC). To learn more about CAPAC and its role in Congress, please visit our Facebook page!
