Winter 2017 Executive Board Meeting is Right Around the Corner!

Message from the State Chair
Dear Fellow Democrats:

So much has happened in the last several months from our sisters rising to speak
up against sexual assault to horrific acts of terrorism that have taken place where
we congregate for entertainment or in a house of worship. It is time for change.
It is time to stand up and take real action. We must encourage more women to speak
up and seek the support of others to militate stopping sexual assault. We must enact
sensible gun violence prevention laws to help stop terrorism on American soil.
More than ever we must come together.

Please join the California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus at our
next meeting during the California Democratic Party Executive Board Meeting on
November 18th at 8:30am in Millbrae, CA. We will be reporting on Democratic Party
activities within the Asian Pacific Islander community. We will also have an engaging
panel on Immigration in the Asian Pacific Islander community with Congressman Ro
Khanna, non-profit and other government leaders.

Thank you and looking forward to working together soon!

Democratically yours,
Melissa Ramoso
State Chair, Asian Pacific Islander Caucus

Asian Pacific Islander Community Empowerment
 

The Asian Pacific American Institute of Congressional Studies (APAICS) hosted two Regional Leadership Academies in California. They were two-day leadership training programs that helped develop leadership skills, promote public service, and support effective, impactful AAPI leaders.

Korean American Democratic Committee mobilizes in Congressional District 34
Rep. Jimmy Gomez
Former California Assembly Member Jimmy Gomez won the June General Election for the Congressional District 34 Special Election against Korean American opponent, Robert Lee Ahn. This race made history with a record voter turnout of Korean Americans in a majority Latino district. This is particularly poignant as Korean Americans only make up 6% of registered voters in the district. The Los Angeles County Clerk reported that 25% of the votes cast in the General Election were from voters with Korean surnames.

Congressman Jimmy Gomez was sworn into office July 11, 2017 and serves on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Natural Resources.
Governor Jerry Brown announced the dates for the Special Election of Assembly District 51 to fill Congressman Jimmy Gomez’s vacant seat. The primary will take place on October 3, 2017 with a General Election to be held on December 5, 2017, if no candidate wins majority of the votes. The Special Election is a crowded race of mostly Democrats including Chinese American candidate Hon. Mike Fong and Filipino American candidate Alex DeOcampo.
Asian Americans comprise approximately 14% of the total population in Assembly District 51, which covers Chinatown and Historic Filipinotown in Los Angeles.

Attack on Indian Americans in Kansas

apiDOn behalf of the California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus, we extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, Indian American engineers who were shot in Olathe, Kansas this week.

Suspect Adam Purinton allegedly confronted Kuchibhotla and Madasani at a bar with anti-immigrant and racial slurs, including, “Get out of my country,” before opening fire, killing Kuchibhotla and seriously injuring Madasani and Ian Grillot, a bystander who attempted to intervene.

Discrimination, hate, and bigotry have no place in America. The Trump administration’s anti-immigrant actions and intolerant rhetoric only serve to promulgate racism and embolden those who are motivated by prejudice and threatening to roll back the progress we have made. This is not the America we know and cherish today.

America is a nation of immigrants. Diversity is our strength. Even so, this horrendous shooting is a solemn reminder that we still have a long road ahead. We must work to make sure that this type of tragedy is not repeated in any corner of our communities. We must continue to work hard to embrace diversity, promote tolerance, and make sure that we move forward, not backward.

In solidarity,

Clark Lee, Esq., State Chair
Hon. Rishi Kumar, Northern Secretary
Deepa Sharma, Esq., Northern Outreach Chair

Executive Order 9066

CADEM-DayofRemembrance

Today, we remember the signing of Executive Order 9066 seventy-five years ago in 1942, which authorized the internment of persons of Japanese ancestry during World War II.

The Japanese internment marked one of the darkest hours in U.S. history as the federal government legalized discrimination. Moreover, more than two-thirds of those interned were American citizens.

In his dissent opinion in Korematsu v. U.S., Supreme Court Justice Frank Murphy called it “legalization of racism” and wrote, “Racial discrimination in any form and in any degree has no justifiable part whatever in our democratic way of life.”

America is a nation of immigrants. As Americans, we must stand up for our resilient democracy, celebrate our vibrant diversity, and protect the rights of every person regardless of background. We must remember that what is legal is not always just. We must stand together and fight together for justice and equality for all.

Today, as we face a White House that wrongfully considers this Executive Order as a precedent for discriminatory executive actions and a president who threatens to roll back the civil rights advancements we have made, we must stand together and make sure that history does not repeat itself ever again.

In solidarity,

Clark Lee, Esq.
State Chair, Asian Pacific Islander Caucus
California Democratic Party

Statement of the California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus Commemorating the 2017 Fred Korematsu Day

LOS ANGELES – California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus Chair Clark Lee released the following statement commemorating the 2017 Fred Korematsu Day:

“On behalf of the California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus, we honor the legacy of Mr. Fred Korematsu in commemorating the 2017 Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution in California, the first day in U.S. history named after an Asian American.

“Facing blatant racial prejudice in World War II, Mr. Korematsu challenged the President’s executive order authorizing Japanese internments and refused to submit to legalized discrimination. In his dissent opinion in Korematsu v. U.S., Supreme Court Justice Frank Murphy called it ‘legalization of racism’ and further wrote, ‘Racial discrimination in any form and in any degree has no justifiable part whatever in our democratic way of life.’

“Nevertheless, today, just ten days after Trump took office as President, the Trump administration has managed to issue discriminatory policies and promote outrageous rhetoric that threaten to erode the progress we have made and roll back the civil rights advancements we cherish.

“The spirit of Mr. Korematsu is more critical now than ever. Across the nation, we see everyday Americans taking action on the streets, at the airports, and in their neighborhoods – many of them becoming politically active for the very first time – in standing up against the Trump policies that seek to enact legalized discrimination of yesteryear. Here in California, we say a resounding ‘NO!’ to these policies and will fight against Trump’s prejudicial actions.

“America is a nation of immigrants. As Americans, we must stand up for our resilient democracy, celebrate our vibrant diversity, and protect the rights of every person regardless of background. Most importantly, we must not forget the ordinary women and men, like Mr. Korematsu, who stood up against prejudice in furthering justice and equality for all.”
