asian pacific american heritage month
Facebook is launching multiple initiatives in support of Asians and Pacific Islanders (API) this Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
The initiatives include new safety and support features, additional funding and partnerships, and a programming series dedicated to the community.
Editor’s Note: This article has been updated to correctly report that Jeanie Jew is a board member of the OCA-Asian Pacific American Advocates. The organization has rebranded from the Organization of Chinese Americans.
Given the significance of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, it is incredible to look back on how this celebration of the community’s countless contributions to the U.S. originated from a congressional staffer’s idea.
