Asian Pacific Island Desi American Awareness Month

April 1 - 30, 2023

12:00 AM - 12:00 AM


Last year our theme was passing the torch from one generation to another. This year we would like to build off of that by not only recognizing the past but also embracing the future and the changes that come with it. Over the past few years as a community, we have suffered both racial and social injustices. As these injustices attempt to smother our strength, we have fought as a united community against each one. Although we have come a long way, it is now our time to embrace the fire within ourselves. That fire is our spirit, our Phoenix. We as a community need to use our voices, passions, talents, and faith to embody the power within us all. This can range from accepting our cultures in everyday life, sharing our foods and traditions with the world, and taking on challenges headfirst in our communities. There is no limit to the power that ignites our greatest strengths. The fire within us never dies out; instead, we rise from it and spread, creating a cloud of hope and power that can overcome any obstacles.
