Norman Mineta is one of the most influential Asian Americans in the history of our nation. A child of immigrants, his uniquely American story charts a path from the shame experienced as an American citizen inside a U.S. internment camp to a public service career that included 20 years in the U.S. Congress and serving in the Cabinets of two Presidents from different parties — Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Now thriving in his 80s, a bipartisan trailblazer, patriot and bold changemaker, his legacy is a lifetime committed to social justice and the embodiment of the American dream.
