May- Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Lighting the Past, Present, and Future

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month — a celebration of Asian and Pacific Islanders in the United States. In 1977-78, Congress passed legislation recognizing the first ten days of May as Asian Pacific Heritage Week. It was expanded in May, 1990 when President George H.W. Bush designated May as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is an opportunity to recognize the diverse culture of Asian Americans and the accomplishments and contributions they have made. The theme this year is "Lighting the Past, Present, and Future."
