ASIA Celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Cleveland, OH - Asian Services In Action, Inc. (ASIA) celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) this May to recognize the history, diversity and achievements of generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
“The Asian Pacific American community is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse groups in Northeast Ohio,” said ASIA CEO Michael Byun. “May is a time to recognize our communities achievements and contributions as we continue to shape the history and culture of the United States.” Asian Pacific American Heritage Week was first established in 1978 through a joint congressional resolution. The first 10 days of May were chosen to coincide with two two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history - the arrival in the U.S. of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and the contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. Fourteen years later, Congress expanded the week to a month-long celebration.
For over 20 years, ASIA has served the AAPI community in Ohio as the leading organization providing culturally and linguistically relevant health and human services to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs), and others who face cultural barriers. During Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, consider supporting ASIA’s programs and services by donating today.
