Celebrating Asian American & Pacific Islander Month in May

In the spirit of honoring the many contributions of the Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities, we invite you to join us in our journey to learn about the richness of diversity in language, religion, culture and traditions that make up these communities.  The “No Longer Invisible:  In Their Own Words” project aims to bring about awareness by highlighting the diversity amongst the AAPI communities.  Story submissions were collected from interested AAPI students, staff, and faculty volunteers.  Each week we will feature two or more stories from the “No Longer Invisible:  In Their Own Words” collection.

 

Please save the date of May 29th from 1:00PM – 3:00PM at the Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center for an exhibit and reception to honor the individual and collective voices of the UW Asian American & Pacific Islander members on campus.  Students, staff, and faculty stories are represented from many departments and majors such as the College of Engineering, the Jackson School of International Studies, the School of Social Work, College of the Environment, American Ethnic Studies, Biology, Public Health, Environmental Science and Resource Management, Communication and more.
