Washington, DC — The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s recent nomination of Julie Su to serve as the U.S. Secretary of Labor.

The Biden Administration got it right in nominating Julie A. Su to be the next Secretary of Labor. She will be the first Asian American Cabinet Secretary in the Biden Administration and reflects the continued commitment of the Administration to appoint AANHPIs throughout the government. We thank President Biden and congratulate Deputy Secretary Su, and look forward to continuing our work with the administration to advance a vision of racial equity that includes Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.
