White House AAPI Office Hours: State of the Union

Yesterday, the President delivered his State of the Union address and laid out his vision for the next year. He laid out a blueprint for an economy that’s built to last. That blueprint includes this Administration’s steadfast commitment to keeping the American dream alive for all, including Asian American and Pacific Islander families across this country. No challenge is more urgent; no debate is more important. That’s why I’d like to invite you to make your voice heard in our post-State of the Union office hours. This is an opportunity for you to respond to us with your thoughts, your questions and your concerns.

Office hours for the AAPI community will take place on January 26 at 6 p.m. EST, led by Chris Lu, Cabinet Secretary and Co-Chair of the White House Initiative on AAPIs. Here's how Office Hours work:

  • Ask your question or submit your comment on Twitter with the hashtag #WHChat
  • Chris will respond to your questions in real-time via Twitter starting at 6 p.m. EST
  • Follow the Q&A through the @WHLive Twitter account
