Asian-Pacific Islander Committee

Overview

Asian-Pacific Islander Committee

This committee is responsible for reviewing policies and programs established by the state directly impacting Asian-Pacific Islander members of Local 1000.

Vision Statement:

The Local 1000 Asian-Pacific Islander Committee will work to empower APIs in the labor movement by ensuring that API workers are recognized, valued, and respected. We will apply that power to share the social, economic, and political issues facing us by developing API members to lead in our Union, in our worksites and in our communities. We do so to leave a stronger, more inclusive union for future generations.

API Members Choose Leadership

More than 100 union leaders attended SEIU’s first Asian Pacific Islander (API) Leadership Summit in Anaheim in August. The Summit’s theme was “Together We Rise” and sought to unite and empower member leaders and staff to build power and to organize against the threats facing the labor movement and our communities.
