Every May the DC Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (OAPIA) celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This year’s theme is Asian American History Revisited through an Exploration of Food. As part of the theme, OAPIA will post food profiles and youth recipes every week on its blog to showcase the diversity of Asian culture and cuisine.
During this month, OAPIA will host one of its largest events, the annual Mayor’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month Celebration which attracts people across DC and greater DC area. Join Mayor Gray for an evening of performances, the Mayor's Community Service Awards, networking opportunities, and more!
