Las Vegas, NV- Last night, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) visited the Asian Night Market, hosted annually by the Asian Community Development Council, and spoke with community members about her work to support Nevadans Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) and their businesses. .
“The Asian Community Development Council’s Asian Night Market is one of a kind, and this year’s event welcomed around 10,000 people,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “I was thrilled to speak with so many Nevadans at the Asian Night Market, and I will always work to support our state’s thriving AAPI community and champion our hard-working families and businesses in the Silver State.”
Senator Cortez Masto met with AAPI leaders in Las Vegas in August to discuss how the Cut Inflation Act would reduce costs for families and create well-paying jobs in Nevada. Last year, she helped secure passage of the bipartisan COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, which she co-sponsored to address rising hate crimes and violence targeting AAPI Americans.
