Ohio AAPI Legislative Day

Legislative Day is sponsored by the Ohio Asian American Health Coalition (OAAHC), formed in 2000 with the goal of supporting AAPI health initiatives and the Ohio Asian American Pacific Islander Advisory Council. Nearly 200+ AAPIs from across Ohio gather at the Ohio Statehouse to showcase the growth, diversity, and influence of our community in Ohio and to discuss issues of concern with our legislators. Breakout sessions include topics such as combating hate crimes and racial profiling; opioid addiction and mental health; increasing access to state services; and gun control. Transportation from Cleveland and Akron to Columbus is provided.   



We feel very strongly that it is important to bring women and women’s voices into AAPI groups and to the Statehouse.
