Unite Our Voices by Speaking Together
The theme this year provides a single focus for all Asian American and Pacific Islanders (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
The Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC) was founded in 1985. It is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization representing the civilian and military Asian Pacific American (APA) employees in the Federal and District of Columbia governments.
FAPAC is an organization that promotes equal opportunity and cultural diversity for APAs within the Federal and District of Columbia governments. FAPAC encourages the participation and advancement of APAs in the Government work force.
FAPAC will be a nationally recognized organization that serves as a conduit through which the interests, issues and representation of Asian Pacific Americans in the Federal, State, County, City and District of Columbia governments are addressed. It will also promote partnerships with the public and private sectors in the community it serves.
