Our participation in annual lobby days in Washington, DC and Jefferson City has increased our visibility and helped inform our community and our elected officials about issues of vital importance.
From art exhibits to volunteer work, engaging with corporations, agencies and organizations leads to greater understanding of the hopes, dreams and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans – and allows us to find common ground. We have also developed deeper relationships with communities across St. Louis.
