Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2019
The theme for this month is “Our Faces, Our Voices”. We chose this theme intentionally because among the many challenges within the Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American communities, a lack of representation within U.S. institutions and erasure of contributions from U.S. history remain most salient to our student body in the present climate. This APAHM, our community has chosen to celebrate the importance and power of our faces and voices: past, present, and future!
