Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month was first established by Congress in 1978 as Pacific/Asian American Heritage Week. In 1990, the celebration was expanded to the entire month of May. This year's theme is Advancing Leaders Through Collaboration. For more information about AAPI month, visit https://asianpacificheritage.gov/
