Asian Amerian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month 
Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is celebrated annually in May. The AAPI month celebrates the contributions, histories, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

During this past year and with the effects of Covid, we have seen an emboldened anti- Asian sentiment throughout the country. This serves as a reminder to learn and celebrate the historical contributions of the AAPI community, both this month and throughout the year.
It is not just about celebrating historical figures and contributions but also creating space for culturally relevant conversations and community action. On April 15, we will be holding a webinar and conversation with author and activist Helen Zia on Asian Activism, Xenophobia, and Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans. This is a free virtual event and all are welcome.
