May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, when we take time to increase our awareness of the many contributions Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have made to our nation and to celebrate diverse Asian and Pacific Islander cultures.

As part of our UAMS AAPI Heritage Month celebration, we invite our campus community members to view a five-part PBS documentary series that celebrates the Asian American experience.   Here is the link to the documentary:

We will also host five virtual healing sessions, which are designed to center the lived experiences of those in the AAPI community.   These sessions will provide a safe space for participants to discuss current events related to the mistreatment and hate crimes experienced by the AAPI community, historic contributions, AAPI allyship and racial equity. Additionally, we will discuss highlights from the PBS documentary series.

If your schedule allows, we invite you take part in one or more of the healing sessions.

These events are coordinated by DDEI Diversity and Inclusion Engagement Subcommittee and the DDEI Office of Intercultural Education.

​Register here to attend one or more healing sessions:
