May 3, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement to commemorate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month:

“I’m proud to represent one of the most racially and ethnically diverse states in the country. Nevada is home to one of the largest Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities nationwide. AAPIs are one of the fastest-growing communities in my district and currently make up 11% of Clark County’s population. In Nevada, nearly one out of every five Asian American–owned businesses are small businesses, which add to our vibrant local economy. This month is not only dedicated to celebrating the rich history, culture, and amazing contributions by Nevada’s local AAPI community, but to reflect on the immigrant story. We must remember that building a stronger and more inclusive America means recognizing our country’s strength in diversity.”
