Slide one:

Happy AAPI Heritage Month! What does being AAPI mean to you?

Slide two: Why it is important

AAPI people have a long history in the United States, regardless of the stereotype that they are "perpetual foreigners" and not truly American. AAPI people have contributed significantly in many areas of American culture and society, and this month celebrates the journey of AAPI people in the country and their experiences, cultures and traditions.

Slide three: Background on the month

The effort to officially recognize AAPI contributions to the country began in the late 1970s and took over ten years to become a dedicated month-long celebration. It originally began as a week and was only recognized as a month in 1990.
