Biden will name a high-level Asian American member of the AAPI community to a position in the White House, she said.
“That’s something we’re working to do through consultation with a range of officials and elected officials as well. That person will be a commissioned officer and will be working on both policy and outreach,” Psaki said.
“A big part of our effort has also been on taking actions to address the rise in anti-Asian violence and bias, and underscoring the commitment of our entire administration to working in partnership with the AAPI community,” she said.
“The President announced that DOJ has launched an agency-wide initiative to address anti-Asian hate crimes and acts of violence. DOJ is taking steps to strengthen hate crimes data, reporting on AAPI violence, improve law enforcement training so that local law enforcement agencies can better identify anti-Asian bias,” she added.
