Established in 2000, the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Caucus has a mission to provide Asian Pacific American municipal officials and their colleagues with a forum to share ideas and develop leadership experience. It also provides resources for city officials to discuss League priorities and issues, and offer avenues for communicating with the state's API constituency.
API Caucus is a diversity caucus organized within the League of California Cities. The API Caucus serves as leaders to improve the quality of life, advocate on behalf of the API community, and provide resources to develop the next generation of leaders. Active in the development of public policy affecting our cities, constituents, and all of California, there are more than 100 API local elected officials in California.
