The Steve Fund recognizes that these are challenging, unprecedented times for students, parents, and mental health advocates. Now more than ever, mental health providers must invest in culturally-grounded forms of care, both for their communities and themselves.  Our next webinar in the Community Conversations series, "Mental Health Providers Supporting Clients of Color: Self-Care, Community Care for You" fosters knowledge exchange and lessons learned by mental health professionals supporting communities of color. Join us for this dynamic 60-minute webinar moderated by Dr. Carlton Green, Director of Diversity Training at the University of Maryland, College Park and Steve Fund national advisor, along with our panelists Hector Adames and Drs. Sherry Davis Molock, Michael Spencer and Arianne Miller.  Our panelists will explore aspects of the Radical Healing framework and its use as a tool for care and healing. The framework is designed to achieve a balanced outlook on the past and future, while providing culturally-informed tools that promote health and hope. Learn more

 Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month


Past Events

Also known as CelebrAsian, AASS holds and coordinates several events on campus in honor or Asian American and Pacific Islander Month (May)! 

Celebrasion2015_4.jpg 
 

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.
