One APIA Nevada was founded in 2018 in an effort to unite the fastest growing group in Nevada, Asian Pacific Islander Americans. From 2000 to 2010, the Asian American population has grown 130 percent.
"We need [people] to understand that we are made up of 48 ethnicities, languages and cultures in Nevada alone," said Duy Nguyen, our executive director.
We emphasize the importance of representing every single ethnicity in our community and we strive to invigorate our presence in Nevada politics. Since our beginnings, we have been featured in several local and national media.
