A word from our President and Founder ...
In 1996, the Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) was launched as a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) with collaboration of visionary community leaders who recognized the unfulfilled need for a place to bring together a significant segment of many disparate and relatively invisible minority Americans of Asian and Pacific Islands heritage.
Through interactive exchanges in arts, culture, education and business, these communities now have an opportunity for their unique contributions to be recognized and valued. Establishment of a suitable permanent central location structure is the next necessary big step if we are to fully realize the promise of this history-making endeavor.
