" MARCH FOR THE DREAM" - In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
#WALKWITHME #MLK365



In partnership with NAACP - Sacramento and the Indian Association of Sacramento, APAPA marched alongside 20,000 people in Sacramento honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

" As API Americans, we are more than just hard working immigrants. We are here to be counted, to show up, and to participate. We take a step forward today and every day to actively participate in civic engagement - never taking anything for granted..."
"...The road ahead is long, but we think about how far we’ve come. Today was a good day as we are reminded that we are not alone in our hopes and dreams. With arms raised, we proudly wave the American flag - We Are Here.”
-C.C. Yin, APAPA Founder
