May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!
Asian and Pacific Islander Americans have shaped our history, culture, economy, political system, and identity. As much as we’ve contributed to our beloved state, we’re also facing renewed challenges in light of COVID-19. This month is a time to reflect upon our roots, be reminded of our histories, and re-commit to having an active role in shaping our path for tomorrow.
Throughout this month, we’ll be shining a light on APA heritage and history, as well as celebrations of community and culture. Follow on our Facebook through #WAAPAHM for the latest information on celebrations, APA history, and more. And, for APAHM resources and educational materials, feel free to visit our web page at: https://capaa.wa.gov/apa-heritage-month/. We’ll be updating it on a regular basis, so send your opportunities and resources our way!
