DNC Statement on Lunar New Year

WASHINGTON – DNC AAPI Caucus Chair Bel Leong-Hong issued the following statement in celebration of Lunar New Year:

“The Lunar New Year is a time to reflect on the strength and diversity of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and its contributions to the very fabric of this great nation.  The Year of the Monkey will be marked by festivities large and small in AAPI communities. Let us welcome the New Year by celebrating our families and ancestors, and by enjoying the company of our loved ones. We are richer because of the different cultures that make up this country. To all those members of our community celebrating the Lunar New Year, on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and the DNC’s AAPI Caucus, I wish you and your loved ones happiness, prosperity, and good health.”
