Celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month


Welcome to May as we celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month! This month we honor the contributions and achievements of members of the AAPI community. Join us in recognizing the rich cultural diversity and history of these communities through events, discussions, and educational activities.

This month honors the trailblazers who have shaped AAPI history and continue to influence the collective future. AAPI leaders have made lasting contributions to our Nation’s economic prosperity, technological advancements, and social/political change through their ingenuity and creativity while navigating significant cultural and systemic barriers.

These AAPI workforce make up a large portion of the essential workers on the frontlines, with 1.4 million AAPI healthcare workers making up 8.5 percent of all essential healthcare workers.

Let's come together to promote understanding and appreciation for AAPI cultures and histories.
