Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

“Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May is a time for reflection, recognition, and celebration of AAPI cultures and histories. With the hate and negative stereotypes that afflict our community—especially since the pandemic started in early 2020—this is another good time to stand up, be proud of who we are, show great leadership, and continue to build authentic partnerships with allies and supporters. The foundation seeks to honor and celebrate the contributions made by the AAPI community in the Portland-Metro region, as well as to America’s history and society.” – Randy Choy, MAF board member
