OCA Congratulates Glenn D. Magpantay on His Appointment
OCA - Asian Pacific American Advocates congratulates Mr. Magpantay on his appointment to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights
Washington, D.C. — OCA - Asian Pacific American Advocates released the following statement regarding the appointment of Glenn D. Magpantay to the United States Commission on Civil Rights:
As a longtime supporter and member of OCA, we are delighted to see the appointment of Mr. Magpantay to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR). With his years of experience as a voting rights advocate, he would be a great addition to the Commission.
Amidst the spike of anti-Asian racism, it is essential that a member from the Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs) community is present at the table when issues like these are discussed. Thus, we commend U.S. Senate Majority Leader Schumer on the Senate’s choice in appointing Mr. Magpantay to the USCCR.
We congratulate Mr. Magpantay on his appointment, and we look forward to continuing to work together to advocate for the AANHPI community.
OCA-Asian Pacific American Advocates is a national social justice organization of community advocates dedicated to improving the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs). Learn more about our work at ocanational.org/about.
