Description/Mission statement:
The Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS) is dedicated to increasing participation of individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage at all levels of the political process, from community service to elected office.

Founded in 1995, APAICS was created to promote, support and conduct non-partisan education and informational activities, research and programs designed to effectively enhance and increase the participation of the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) community in the democratic process at the national, state and local levels.

As more APIA's participate in all facets of government life as elected and appointed officials, APAICS's vision for a full and equal presence for our community in public life continues to gain momentum. The APIA community is advancing up the political ladder. Ready to lead the APIA community into the 21st century, APAICS is the torchbearer for an ambitious agenda of political empowerment, candidate training and coalition building.
