Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month
With the rise of
anti-Asian hate crimes during the coronavirus pandemic, Asian American and
Pacific Islander Heritage Month is a significant time for celebrating and
raising awareness. In addition, it’s an opportunity to show love and support
across the many cultures within the AAPI community and solidarity with
non-Asian communities—turning grief and injustice into activism and joy.
Austin SHRM proudly celebrates all Asian/ Pacific Americans and wants to pay tribute to the generations who have somehow enriched and strengthened us all. Did you know Asian and Pacific Islanders have contributed many facets to American culture and society, including literature and art, science and medicine, technology, sports and recreation, government, and politics? Let us celebrate the unique journey of all Asian/Pacific Islander immigrants and citizens in the United States and their unique life experiences, traditions, and cultures.
