Asian-Pacific Heritage Month

Don’t ever think that just because you do things differently, you’re wrong.

Gail Tsukiyama

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, which celebrates Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders' achievements and contributions in the United States. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a prosperous heritage spanning thousands of years old and have shaped the United States' history. May commemorates the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States on May 7, 1843.
