"I am fully committed to ensuring and protecting the civil rights of all Americans. I vehemently stand against any sort of racial, cultural, or religious intolerance that threatens to divide the melting pot our country has become. If we want to uphold the principle of equality that this country prides itself on, we must not let fear tear us apart."

"As an immigrant from Taiwan, I am proud to be a strong advocate for Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in Congress. As an executive board member of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), I am dedicated to promoting the well-being of the AAPI community."

More information on Congressman Lieu's work on AAPI issues can be found here.
