Celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

Celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month 

May 1, 2024 - AFA is proud to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) Month in May, an annual national observance celebrating the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.

While we celebrate the contributions of trailblazers, this month is not just a time to highlight history—we must take on racism, poverty and inequality today to make lasting change. That starts in our union, in our industry and our country.

Last year, our union developed an AAPI pin. Local Councils will receive the pins and distribute them. Diversity and Inclusion pins were a concept put forward by AFA members through AFA structure. We now have a PRIDE pin, a Black History Month pin, Black Lives Matter pin, AAPI pin, Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month Pin, and a Native American pin. We expect to hear from additional members who want to celebrate our diverse history, and we will take similar action when we do.
