On Sunday, June 27th, 2021, APPAC was joined by New York State Attorney General Letitia James. AG James has been a strong advocate for Pakistani-Americans and continuously denounces and investigates acts of hate and violence against Muslim Americans.

Tish James has made that a priority during her time as Attorney General by holding key positions for Pakistani-Americans and providing leadership opportunities for our community. This type of representation has made a lasting impact on generations of Pakistani-Americans, including first-generation South Asian young people who have been running for office in NYC, working to bring meaningful and positive change for our communities.

Thanks to Tish James for setting that example and continuing to recognize the importance of including Pakistani and Muslim communities.
