Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

King County Executive Dow Constantine has proclaimed the month of May Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in King County, and encouraged all residents to “join in this celebration of the culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in King County and the United States.”

“Despite economic hardship, restrictive and exclusionary laws, pervasive racism, and attacks on civil rights, Asian Pacific Americans have lived in the Pacific Northwest for generations and contributed to every major industry and profession in this region, playing an essential role in making King County one of the most vibrant and culturally rich regions in the United States,” Executive Constantine said in the Proclamation.
