Celebrate with us!

Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Welcome to the Annual City of Seattle celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. In May we acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of immigrant, refugee, and American born Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

This year’s series of events at the City of Seattle will showcase the diverse and unique voices of the Asian Pacific American communities. Within our diverse communities there is a united voice that connects us all. We invite you to join us in our journey to learn about ourselves and each other.

In essence of these challenging times and limited resources; it's a great opportunity for us to challenge and encourage each other to build relationships, strengthening our allies, share our voices, our stories and our individual and collective journeys. We also encourage all of you to support community efforts. Perhaps this will be an opportunity for us to break down the barriers and embrace our collective strength. We invite all of you to join us. Bring your colleagues, friends and family to a few of these learning & networking opportunities!
