May Is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is observed each May. This month honors the history, culture, and influence of individuals and groups from the entire Asian continent, including East, Southeast, and South Asia and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia.

AAPI is celebrated in many ways for many things, and we love seeing how members of these rich communities honor this heritage. Here at Visions, we encourage this recognition year round, and invite you to find ways to honor and celebrate these diverse cultures.
