The fun stuff
May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.
Indulge in some history. In 1991, a law was passed requesting that the President proclaim May 1991 and May 1992 as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Months.” This law also recognized the significance of May 7th and May 10th in the history of Asian/Pacific Americans. May 7, 1843 is the date on which the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States while on May 10, 1869 the first transcontinental railroad in the United States was completed with significant contributions from Chinese pioneers. In 1992, Congress permanently designated May of each year as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.”
We recommend this series now streaming on PBS. LINK
Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever. As America becomes more diverse, and more divided while facing unimaginable challenges, how do we move forward together? Told through intimate personal stories, the series will cast a new lens on U.S. history and the ongoing role that Asian Americans have played.
Every 10 years, people across the country and in California fill out the Census in order to have an accurate county of all people in the United States. The Census determines California's federal funding for important community services that help support our families and fair share of representation in California and Washington, DC.
The Census is NOW. Let's ensure all Californians are counted so we can put those resources to good use here at home!
If you have completed your Census - our community thanks you! See how many others have at this LINK. Chinatown is in Fresno Census Tract 3.
