31 Days of Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage

Join us this month as we celebrate AAPI Heritage month with 31 days of daily posts from The Mountain TopUU‘s Steering Committee.

Starting from 1990, the month of May celebrates the culture, legacy, and resiliency of the Asians, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and native Hawaiians in the United States. We would like to highlight the history, struggles, and achievements of the AAPI Community.

We are grateful to have contributions from our TMT Members: Lia N, Christine Y, Paul E, and Nicole T.

As Unitarian Universalists, we cherish the diversity that enriches our communities. At TheMountainTopUU, we are committed to embracing diversity, fostering understanding, and celebrating the vibrant cultures and contributions of the AAPI community. Join us in honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month!

Throughout May, we will come together to learn, uplift, and support our AAPI siblings with daily reflections, stories of oppression, and celebrations of achievements. Together, we can create a more inclusive and equitable world, amplify AAPI voices, and work towards a more inclusive world. Let’s deepen our understanding, foster inclusivity, and stand together in solidarity. Together, we can create a world where everyone’s story is valued and celebrated.
