Message from the President
Celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May marks Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI), when we recognize and celebrate the significant contributions, achievements, and cultural influences Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have had on American history and culture.

In 2021, Kamala Harris became the first Asian American Vice President of the United States. In film history, AAPI people, their stories, and traditions became more visible with South Korean director Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite winning the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2019 and the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in 2021, debuting Marvel’s first Asian superhero.

From science and medicine, literature and art, and sports and recreation to government and politics, and activism and law, Asian American and Pacific Island innovators have made a huge impact on peoples’ lives.

Let’s join the celebration!
