visualizAsian.com is proud to announce the launch of its Asian American
Pacific Islander (AAPI) Empowerment Series!
It's a series of FR*EE teleconference interviews with leading AAPIs from
politics, pop culture, business and more, as a way to inspire and
empower other AAPIs to follow in their footsteps.
We're kicking off the series during Asian American Pacific Islander
Heritage Month with an interview with Former Transportation Secretary
Norman Y. Mineta.
Not only is Mineta the first Asian American to be appointed to a Cabinet
position (Secretary of Commerce under Bill Clinton), he is also the
longest-serving Secretary of Transportation in U.S. history (under
George Bush). He was a co-sponsor, along with Congressman Frank Horton
(R-NY) of both the 1978 House Resolution establishing Pacific/Asian
Heritage Week and the 1992 bill that expanded the week into "Asian
Pacific American Heritage Month."
