The Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities’ profound impact on the history of the United States is reflected throughout our arts, culture, and education.
Morgan Lewis’s Asian American/Asian Lawyer Network joins in celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Below, the network leaders offer personal reflections on what this time means to them, using the #APAHM hashtag to help promote this important month.
“#APAHM is an opportunity to learn about our community’s contributions to American history, reflecting on our past and being excited about what we can accomplish together in the future.”
“#APAHM reminds me to celebrate my Asian heritage with pride, raise awareness of the ongoing challenges the #AAPI community faces, and remain hopeful for the equity and inclusion goals of all diverse communities.”
“#APAHM is an opportunity to take stock of the culture, experiences, and contributions of Asian Pacific Americans in history, and a reminder to be courageous in using our voices meaningfully to advocate for the inclusion and representation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in society.”
“#APAHM is an opportunity to come together and reflect upon our community’s roots and to look forward to our bright future.”
