UPDATE (FEB. 28, 2023): President Biden announced his intent to nominate Julie Su as Labor Secretary.
CAPA21 today sent a letter to President Biden endorsing Julie Su for U.S. Secretary of Labor.
In its letter, CAPA21 said: “In addition to Deputy Secretary Su being supremely qualified to serve as Secretary of Labor, her appointment and confirmation would fill the glaring absence of an Asian American Pacific Islander in your Cabinet, an exclusion that we did not have the shame of experiencing in the past four Administrations and for more than 20 years. Even Donald Trump included an AAPI in his Cabinet.”
We were promised a Cabinet that looks like America, but the promise has yet to be realized.
