Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) lawmakers are pushing for President-elect Biden to nominate California Labor Secretary Julie Su to head the U.S. Department of Labor.

AAPI lawmakers have escalated their calls in recent weeks, with Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) on Friday urging Biden to include an AAPI Cabinet secretary.

Su would make “an exceptional leader” as labor secretary, Rep. Grace Meng (D-N.Y.) tweeted Wednesday.

“Zero #AAPI Cabinet Secretaries in his administration would be a disappointment for Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders.”

AAPI advocacy groups, immigration and labor organizations and women’s rights groups have also backed Su for labor secretary.
