Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month 2023

 

 

Celebrating the History, Culture, & Impact of API Communities

Since 1982, NAAAP has been convening emerging leaders and amplifying the Asian American voice and experience. NAAAP has inspired leaders, organizations and our communities across USA, Canada and China through our impactful initiatives on a yearly basis. Within all of our events, NAAAP ensures that we are authentically representing Asian culture and heritage on our platform. 

Representing our culture and heritage authentically is about being honest and sharing transparent stories and experiences that allow individuals to understand the nuances in Asian culture.

This month we are proud to highlight and celebrate programming that represents the large diversity of the Asian diaspora with our NAAAP events for Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
