DA Global AAPI Caucus Leadership:
Like many of you, we were looking forward to celebrating Lunar New Year and starting the year on a positive note.
Instead, we are mourning the 18 lives lost in the California shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay. These tragic continuations of the gun violence epidemic in our communities show the desperate need for greater gun control in the U.S. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have already been 40 mass shootings in 2023. This has to stop: we must continue pressuring our representatives and elect lawmakers who will take the necessary action to end the violence.
We wish all our members, families, friends, and allies a more peaceful, prosperous and, above all, safe 2023, Year of the Rabbit and of the Cat.
As we begin our planning for 2023, we want to hear from you! We have put together a short survey to collect feedback about what you would like to see this caucus do. We would appreciate you taking 10-15 minutes to complete the survey and to help our caucus improve. You can even enter for a chance to win an Amazon gift card! We would appreciate your feedback by Wednesday, February 8th.
