GSEP Celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

April 30, 2021  | 1 min read

This month, we unite to recognize and celebrate the remarkable achievements of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders throughout our history. May was chosen to coincide two important milestones in Asia/Pacific American History: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants (May 7, 1843) and the anniversary of and contributions of Chinese immigrants to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869.

We hope you will be inspired by this reflective video message from our Education Faculty Professor Dr. Kevin Wong on this momentous occasion. For the duration of the month of May, we are celebrating those who have been traditionally invisible in this country. At GSEP, we believe that everyone is welcome and everyone has a seat at the table.

How can we honor AAPI? To learn, to unlearn, and to listen. 

You count and your voice deserves to be heard.
