Ending the month with some inspiration

Ending the month with some inspiration

The political news seems to be nonstop, but let’s take a short break from the fight to celebrate who we are. 

 

Tomorrow marks the end of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. And before the celebration comes to a close, we hope you’ll join us in taking a few moments to recognize some of the many contributions this diverse community has made in California and across our nation.

Celebrating Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Now more than ever, we can all take inspiration from Californians like: 

  • Fred Korematsu, who challenged Japanese internment during WWII and inspired a generation of civil rights activists after him 

 

  • March Fong Eu, who broke the glass ceiling and paved the way for more women in government when she became the first woman and Chinese American to serve as California’s Secretary of State

 

  • Larry Itliong, one of the founding fathers of the West Coast labor movement, who along with Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, organized Filipino communities and workers to improve labor conditions

And the countless Asian American and Pacific Islanders who contribute to our nation as scientists and engineers developing life-changing breakthroughs, soldiers protecting us in uniform, to world-famous artists and entertainers helping us further discover our humanity. 

 

From the first Chinese immigrants who built the foundation of California, our railroads, to recent immigrants who work long hours to build a future for their families, California’s AAPI communities represent the very best of the Golden State. 

 

 

In celebration,
