Recently, LAOE and several of the Lao community leaders spent numerous hours visiting with the Illinois State Representatives at their district office as well as in Springfield. The main purpose is to engage and increase our community visibility with elected officials. We also asked them to support the Asian American Caucus Agenda which includes State Asian Employment Plan, Hepatitis B Outreach and Education, and Language Access issues.
