2016 LA Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

We Are LA


Message from APAHM Co-Chairs

"As the first Korean American and second Asian Pacific American (APA) to serve on the Los Angeles City Council, I am proud to Co-chair this year's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Every May, communities across the U.S. pay a month-long tribute to the generations of APAs who have enriched America's culture, economy, and history. This event showcases our City's diverse tapestry and reaffirms our commitment to the inclusion of all people."
David Ryu, Los Angeles City Councilmember, District 4

"APAHM is about solidarity, and recognizing that although there are many different groups that comprise the Asian Pacific American diaspora—we stand by one another and together we have played a major factor in building Los Angeles to what it is today. I am honored to continue this tradition in highlighting our APA community and celebrating our richness and diversity. Los Angeles’s APAHM celebration will be testimony to the largest presence of APAs in our nation and I thank Mayor Eric Garcetti for allowing me to serve our great city of Angels! Mabuhay! "
-Joel Jacinto, Commissioner, Los Angeles Board of Public Works

About Los Angeles Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (LAAPAHM)

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), a celebration of Asian Pacific Americans(APAs) in the United States. For the last three decades, the City of Los Angeles has held a series of events throughout the month to highlight the significant contributions that APAs have made to the city's past, present and future.

This year's APAHM

The theme of LAAPAHM 2016 is “We are LA.” From creating small businesses and tech companies to playing major roles in entertainment, restaurants, music, culture, community service, and government, the stories of Asian Pacific Americans have long been a part of LA’s history and they will continue to be a big part of LA’s future. This theme clearly encapsulates the fact that APAs are an important and integral part of the story of Los Angeles. We have shaped L.A. and are embedded in the social, cultural and economic life of the city.

  • Entertain LA
  • Empower LA
  • Taste LA
