May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month
Posted by Free Library of Philadelphia on May 2, 2023
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, and it’s a wonderful time to celebrate this rich and varied cultural heritage with the whole family! The acronym stands in for a great number of different communities with ancestry in Asia, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and the Pacific Islands. Particularly in an era of growing intolerance, it is a form of healing to shine a light on the contributions of AAPI immigrants and their descendants.
This year’s theme is Advancing Leaders through Opportunity, a call to uplift and support future leaders of AAPI communities.
