Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, May 2020
This year the King County Asian Pacific Islander Affinity Group (API) has developed several events and resources to share API culture, support the API community, and learn more about Asian American and Pacific Islander history.
- Volunteering at Danny Woo Garden, Wednesday, May 27, 2020 from 1-4 p.m. Contact Sung Cho to volunteer.
- Asian Americans PBS Series discussion, Thursday, May 28, 2020 from noon to 1 p.m. Join on Zoom.
The API group has also put together resources to help employees learn how they can better support the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Consider supporting a local business or produce and flower farm owned or operated by Asian American and Pacific Islander individuals. Employees can also learn more about Asian American and Pacific Islander Leaders and Luminaries in a presentation developed by the API group, viewable here.
Additionally, employees are invited to participate in the API “Thank You Campaign” to send letters of appreciation to King County essential workers. To ensure their letter is included, employees will need to submit their letter directly to Stephanie Santos by Tuesday, May 26.
For questions about these events and for more information, contact Stephanie Santos with the King County Asian Pacific Islander Affinity Group.
