3AF Members Can Help Shape our Future
As Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month 2019 comes to a close, we at 3AF are reminded of the many accomplishments, milestones, and triumphs of our Asian American community over this past year.

In 2020, we have another opportunity to help our Asian American community find success. The 2020 Census is approaching starting in mid-March, and it is crucial that our community fill out census forms completely and accurately.
