White House Initiative on Asian American Pacific Islander (WHIAAPI)

WHIAAPI Southeast Network works to build relationships with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and community-based organizations that support the AAPI population.

November 3, 2015 – North Miami, Florida In partnership with the White House Initiative on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) – Southern Region, the Asian American Federation of Florida (AAFF) hosted the first WHIAAPI Roundtable on Saturday, October 24 at the NANAY Community Center in North Miami.

The purpose of the WHIAAPI Roundtable is to bridge the gap between the AAPI community and the federal government so the local AAPI community would have opportunities to meet various federal agencies for better understanding of federal policies and services as well as to increase AAPI’s participation.

Over 50 community leaders and members attended the first WHIAAPI Roundtable representing the Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Nepali, Thai, and Vietnamese communities.
