Celebrate Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month

In 1992, members of the U.S. Congress set aside an entire month to remember and celebrate the contributions that Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) have made to American society and culture throughout history. 

"The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants." (AsianPacificHeritage.gov).
