Community Outreach and Education

The Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (OAPIA) acts as a liaison between the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and the District government. It conducts outreach to AAPI community groups, residents, and merchants in the District.

Through these grassroots efforts, OAPIA is able to:

  • Keep AAPI residents and merchants informed of the District’s programs and services
  • Inform the Mayor of any AAPI residents’ and merchants’ concerns or issues
  • Encourage AAPI community participation in DC affairs and government programs
  • Assist constituents with accessing government services.
