Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the theme?
Unite Our Voices by Speaking Together 
The theme this year provides a single focus for all AAPI’s to unite by speaking together. This theme encourages the various AAPI communities to join together to overcome misconceptions and stereotypes about the vibrant and diverse AAPI community. The AAPI experience varies greatly and all groups must join together to communicate our individual experiences. Diversity is a Journey and we can not travel there alone. By uniting our voices, we can raise issues and tell stories that elevate the AAPI community. With this theme, we hope to improve representation in the workplace by communicating the benefits of a diverse workforce. 
“No community should be invisible to its government.” President Barack Obama, October 14, 2009
