 API Heritage Month 2015

CelebrAsian 2015

Asian Pacific Heritage month is a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Asian-Pacific encompasses all of the Asian Continent and the various Pacific Islands.

In June of 1977, a congressional bill was introduced to that called upon the President to proclaim the first ten days of May as Asian Pacific-Heritage Week. Then following month, a similar bill was introduced to the Senate. Both of them were passed. On October 5, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a Joint Resolution designating the annual celebration. George H.W. Bush signed an extension, making the week-long celebration into a month-long celebration twelve years later. In 1992, the official designation of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Month was signed into law.

The celebration is set in the month of May to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S on May 7, 1843, and also to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869, where a majority of those who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
