May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage month and this year the Central Florida AAPI community came out in full swing to celebrate our rich plethora of backgrounds and cultures. These festivities took place at the community level from our local nonprofits and community partners including corporate and governmental groups, as well as from student groups from schools, colleges and universities. With such a breadth of celebration, enthusiasm was far reaching this year and community leaders were eager to share how they engaged with APAHM, below we’ve compiled some highlights from local news in the past month.
