AAPI Heritage Month Celebration 2024

Press Release Date:
May 01, 2024


The Fresno Center is hosting Asian – American Pacific Islander Heritage Celebration.


Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) individuals and communities are irrefutable sources of our cities’ strength. The richness of our city’s multicultural democracy is strengthened by the diversity of AAPI communities and the many cultures and languages of AAPI. The City of Fresno Acknowledges AAPI Heritage Month to honor and appreciate the diverse heritage, achievements, and resilience of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in shaping culture and history. We must also recognize the discrimination, exclusion, and outright violence that AAPI communities face to this day. Throughout our history, AAPIs have been the target of senseless violence and disenfranchisement. It is imperative that we confront past and present racism and fight for the safety and inclusion of our AAPI friends and neighbors. During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, The City of Fresno pays tribute at City Hall to the irreplaceable legacy of our AAPI communities, and their many contributions to strengthen our City today and into the future. Today the City of Fresno proclaims May 2, 2024. Following the proclamation is a celebratory event at The Fresno Center.
