Join CAIR-Chicago at the Asian American Caucus Press Conference – June 26th

Join CAIR-Chicago staff, law clerks, and interns at a press-conference for the first Chicago Asian American Caucus. The Asian American Caucus seeks to build a coalition of Chicago legislators who will advocate on behalf of Asian communities, businesses, and human service organizations. The Caucus also intends to eradicate some specific issues within the Asian American community such as language access, Hepatitis B, and business licensing and inspection challenges.
