Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement recognizing Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
“Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is an opportunity to celebrate the rich culture and contributions of our AAPI communities. In Nevada, home to one of America’s fastest-growing AAPI populations, Asian and Pacific American heritage is forever woven into the fabric of the Silver State and reflected in our vibrant and diverse communities. Our Asian Pacific American community is making contributions to our state and leading in fields from medicine and business, to education and public service. As we celebrate this month, I encourage all Nevadans to learn about the deep roots of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in Nevada and across the country.”
