California State Board of Equalization member Dr. Judy Chu has made history by becoming the first Chinese American congresswoman in the  United States  .  



OCA, a national, nonpartisan organization dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans, applauds Chu for her election to represent the 32nd district in  California Chu  is a long-time member of the OCA-Greater Los Angeles Chapter. 


The seat was left vacant after Hilda Solis became President Barack Obama's labor secretary.
“We are thrilled to note such a historic occasion for one of our members and one of the APA community’s great leaders “, said OCA National President Ken Lee. “Our  National Center  in  Washington DC  looks forward to working with her and her staff and we are excited for her to address our entire membership at our upcoming National Convention.”



Chu has recently said her priority in Congress will be the economy. But as a descendant of an immigrant family, she also will push forward immigration reform.
