Abstract

In the Spring of 2004, the Iowa legislature passed the bill to establish the Commission on the Status of Iowans of Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage (CAPI) within the Department of Human Rights. Nine (9) commissioners were appointed by the Governor in October. In August 2006, the first division administrator was appointed; thus the Division was established. The duties of the Commission, as established in Iowa Code Chapter 216A.152, define the work of the Division. Vision: All Asian and Pacific Islander Iowans live up to their potential, regardless of ethnicity, station in life, and religion. Mission: To ensure Iowa’s Asians and Pacific Islanders have opportunities equal to other Iowans in education, employment, health care, housing, and safety and to publicize the accomplishments and contributions of the Asian and Pacific Islanders to the state.
