Executive Constantine proclaims May as Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders Month

King County Executive Dow Constantine has issued a Proclamation recognizing May as Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders month.

“We honor the invaluable contributions and leadership of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders across King County, whose communities are diverse and distinct in culture, ethnicity, history, language, nationality, racial
identity, religion, and a variety of complex identities – which means there is no single story of the AANHPI experience, but many different stories that strengthen our society,” Executive Constantine said in his Proclamation. “I encourage residents to join in this recognition of the cultures, traditions, and histories of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in our County and nation.”
