What we do
The Mayor’s Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs (MCAPAA) is composed of 25 professionals and community leaders who represent the diversity of Philadelphia’s Asian American population.
As part of its work, the MCAPAA:
- Advises the Mayor on issues and policies that are important to Asian communities in the City.
- Ensures diversity and inclusion for Asian communities within City policies.
- Helps Asian American community organizations develop strategies and programs that enhance the social, cultural, and economic status of the Asian American community.
The commission is part of the Office of Immigrant Affairs. It shares a mission with the Mayor's Office of Public Engagement, which works to increase collaboration with specific communities throughout Philadelphia.
