Meet and Greet with Congresswoman Judy Chu was a success!

New Faces of Leadership – Congresswoman Judy Chu

The APIAVote’s New Faces of Leadership Speaker Series held a meet-and-greet event with California Congresswoman Judy Chu. The event was hosted by our gracious member Margaret Wong in her office on Feb 18, 2012. More than 60 people attended the one hour event.

Attendees learned the importance of getting involved, stepping up, and speaking out against racism. The audience was very engaged and participated a lot. Later, Congresswoman became the focal point of a short OCA Image TV interview.
Finally, she joined some of the community business leaders for a delicious, ten course meal prepared by East 30th Café. The dinner event was sponsored by Radhika Reddy of Ariel International. Pictures of the event is available at OCA Cleveland Chapter’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OCACleveland.

Congresswoman Dr. Judy Chu was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for California’s 32nd District in July 2009. She immediately got to work representing the interests of her constituents, voting on several environmental bills and working through the night on her first day in office, during a marathon debate on important healthcare reform legislation as part of her first assignment on the House Education and Labor Committee, where she served on the Subcommittees on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education and Healthy Families and Communities.

In the 112th Congress, Rep. Chu serves on the House Judiciary Committee, where she is a member of the Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security and the Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet subcommittees. She is also a member of the House Small Business Committee, where she is leading the Contracting and Workforce Subcommittee as the Ranking Democrat and serves on the Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access and Agriculture, Energy and Trade Subcommittees. In 2011, she was elected as the Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC).
