Las Vegas, Nev. – Last night, Senator 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 Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Nevadans 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’ll always work to support our state’s thriving AAPI community and stand up for our hardworking families and businesses in the Silver State.”

Senator Cortez Masto met with AAPI leaders in Las Vegas in August to discuss how the Inflation Reduction Act would lower costs for families and create good-paying jobs in Nevada. Last year, she helped secure passage of the bipartisan COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, which she cosponsored to address the rise of hate crimes and violence targeted at AAPI Americans.
