Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Susie Lee (Nev.-03), member of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), released the following statement commemorating the month of October as Filipino American History Month:

“For generations, Filipino Americans have made Nevada and the United States home. From the labor movement, to the civil rights movement, to defending our nation overseas, Filipino Americans are woven into the fabric of America. I’m lucky to represent such a strong and diverse Filipino community in Nevada’s 3rd District, including many Filipino small business owners and frontline workers who need our support now more than ever during this pandemic. This month and every month, I will continue to lift up the voices, stories, and issues of southern Nevada’s Filipino community.”
