UW celebrates AAPI heritage

To commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, University of Washington students, staff, and faculty are sharing their personal stories of identity in a project titled “No Longer Invisible: In Their Own Words.”

Stories are posted on the UW Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity website (www.washington.edu/omad/no-longer-invisible/) throughout the month to highlight the diversity in language, religion, culture, and tradition of the AAPI communities.

The project will culminate with a story exhibit and reception on May 29, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center on the UW campus. The event is free and open to the public, however RSVP’s to Linda Ando (riziki@uw.edu) or Chanira Reang Sperry (creang@uw.edu) are appreciated. The story exhibit will be displayed at the Kelly ECC through June 4. (end)
