About Us
On January 8, 2009 through Executive Order 01-09, the Honorable Michael A. Nutter re-established the Mayor’s Commission on Asian American Affairs recognizing the needs and issues of our increasingly diverse Asian American population. The Commission is charged with keeping the Mayor and Administration officials apprised of issues and concerns in the Asian American community; serving as a connector between the Asian American community and social service, community, cultural organizations and City government.

In 2010, the all volunteer Advisory Commission has identified issues important to the community, collaborated with other organizations working on common issues and made recommendations after soliciting input from variety of sources and put into action what was feasible within its purview. We would like extend our appreciation to all those who have collaborated, testified and shared information with the Commission.
