Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI Heritage Month) is an annual celebration that recognizes the historical and cultural contributions of individuals and groups of Asian and Pacific Islander descent to the United States. The AAPI includes East, Southeast and South Asia—and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. As of 2019, there were about 23 million people of Asian or Pacific Islander descent in the United States. According to the Pew Research Center. AAPI people are a diverse and growing population that make up about 7 percent of the total U.S. population.
Asian Americans contribute in every sector of our society and trace their roots to more than 20 countries in the East, Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent; each with their unique histories, cultures, languages, and other characteristics.
