Celebration of AAPI Heritage Month: Forum on Asian American’s History, Culture, and Future

The forum aims to discuss topics such as Asian-American diaspora, self-identity, history, activism, and stereotypes. We invited tens of Asian American NGOs to bring together Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders from all across the greater Philadelphia area to enjoy a day of learning, networking, and connecting with other AAPIs who are creating change in their communities and raise awareness of other prominent issues that affect AAPI communities.

Special thanks to Lincoln Financial Group and its Asian American Business Resource Group for its generous sponsorship of this event.
