Celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month is observed every May to honor the rich culture and traditions of the AAPI community. It’s also a time to celebrate AAPI culture through the exploration of art, music, food, and more. While the contributions, accomplishments, and culture of the community should be acknowledged and celebrated all everyday, this month provides a time to renew your focus on learning more about the AAPI community. With the rise in hate crimes towards Asian Americans in recent years, spending time learning about the community has never been more important. We’ve compiled a list of ways to help get you started celebrating this APPI Heritage Month.

Most importantly keep learning and reflecting and remember that the challenges AAPI communities face are ongoing, not just history. Incorporate anti-racism and anti-colonialism into everyday action, not just during AAPI Heritage Month.
