Managing Director at Ansir Innovation Center is a member of the Asian Pacific American Coalition (APAC) is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to cultivate civic engagement to forward the voices of San Diego’s Asian Pacific American community. APAC was prominently involved in the local redistricting process in 2011. After spending months attending redistricting meetings, hosting rallies and advocating for an Asian-influenced Council seat in the City of San Diego, APAC is now turning its attention towards new activities and programs that will make a difference in our community. APAC is also currently in the process of transitioning to a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. This development has created new interest and energy among various groups and individuals who are becoming aware of the urgent need to come together and speak with one voice on civic, social and economic issues that impact our respective communities.
