Gupta appointed Asst. Attorney General of Civil Rights Division

APIAVote applauds the appointment of Vanita Gupta to the position of Acting Assistant Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

“The historic appointment of Vanita Gupta, the first South Asian American to run the Civil Rights division is a timely one. During this period when voting rights are under increasing attack and as Asian American populations continue to rapidly grow in the southern states, Ms. Gupta’s expertise, insight and deep knowledge of these challenges will be more important than ever,” said Christine Chen, Executive Director, Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote).
