Delegates must register their credentials with the Credentials Committee no later than Thursday, August 5 at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.

Founded in 1992, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), AFL-CIO, is the first and only national organization of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) workers, most of whom are union members and our allies, building power for AAPI workers and communities.
