CAPAC Welcomes Rep. Rob Menendez as New Associate Member

WASHINGTON, D.C.  The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) welcomes Rep. Rob Menendez (NJ-08) as a newly confirmed Associate Member for the 118th Congress, bringing the total membership of the Caucus to 76 Members of the U.S. House and Senate.

CAPAC Chair Rep. Judy Chu (CA-28) and Rep. Menendez issued the following statements:

CAPAC Chair Rep. Judy Chu (CA-28):

“I am delighted to welcome Congressman Menendez as the latest Associate Member of CAPAC. With his joining, CAPAC is stronger in its commitment to addressing a broad spectrum of our Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities’ issues and ensuring our voices are heard within Congress. This is especially critical as the AANHPI population is currently the nation’s fastest-growing racial group, comprising of over 21 million Americans, and representing more than 6 percent of the country’s total population. From addressing xenophobia and closing health and economic disparities to creating a humane immigration system that keeps families together and to increasing language access and data equity, CAPAC remains steadfast in elevating AANHPI visibility and ensuring that the needs and concerns of this community are met. I look forward to working with Congressman Menendez to champion our shared priorities that will help advance and celebrate AANHPI communities, and I am grateful for his support.”

Rep. Robert Menendez (NJ-08):

“I am honored to join the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District has a strong, diverse, and growing Asian and Pacific American community which I am proud to represent. I look forward to working with Chair Chu and the rest of CAPAC to support civic and economic opportunities for our Asian and Pacific American community members, fight anti-Asian hatred, and ensure that we can continue to break barriers for all our residents.”
