A Coalition of Asian American Pacific Islander Organizations in the District of Columbia area come together to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
May 6th, 7pm
Come stand in solidarity with the collective Asian American community of Washington, DC as we kick off our Asian Pacific American Heritage Month celebration for 2021! Like last year, our introductory event will be a competitive, yet socially-distanced showcase of AAPI trivia--pub style! After a mini meet-and-mingle, participants will break off into teams to share and celebrate our collective cultural heritage all while engaging in a massive one-upping contest for prizes!
May 11th, 7pm
Know History, Know Self. No History, No Self. Our local histories can teach us a great deal about our communities today. Join us to hear stories of Asian American history and activism in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area—from the rise and fall of DC Chinatown, student activism that demanded Asian American studies at the University of Maryland, and intersections with other social movements. Local Asian American community leaders and advocates will share their stories of fighting to be heard and seen, and how their work continues today. Given the broad array of experiences in the Asian American community, we will also invite audience members to share their own personal stories and histories. Come together with us as we learn how we can all do our part in serving and uplifting Asian American communities in the DMV now.
May 26th - 7pm
Join us as we end our series of events with a Celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage. Enjoy music performances, meditation techniques, henna tattooing and cooking lessons inspired by our roots in our Asian heritage.
