In 1964, Patsy Mink of Hawai’i became the first woman of color elected to Congress. In her 24 years in Congress, she co-authored Title IX and advocated for immigrant rights and child care. Today, more AAPI women are represented in the ranks of American government than ever before, from the first South Asian woman to be elected Vice President to progressive AAPI women in state legislatures across the US. Join us for this conversation on running for office, representation, and day-to-day experiences as Asian American women in government.
