Senator Inouye was a trailblazer in leading the progress of Asian Americans in the United States. For more than half a century, Senator Inouye has been a paragon of public service and personal sacrifice. Along with his wife Irene Hirano Inouye, the Senator actively advanced the Committee of 100's mission of bridging US-China relations and empowering the Asian American community. Mrs. Inouye is a devoted member of the C-100 Advisory Council.
America lost a giant in Senator Daniel Inouye. The Committee of 100 will greatly miss our friend, teacher and hero.
