 2009 UNITED STATES:

Supporting Warner Bros.' NAPA event for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
Wednesday, May 13th in Pasadena, CA

Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and NAPA's 2nd Anniversary, at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena, CA. NAPA is the Network for Asian Pacific Americans formed under Warner Bros. Studios.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), now officially proclaimed "Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month" by President Barack Obama, is a celebration of the culture, traditions, and history of Asians Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

Congress passed a joint Congressional Resolution in 1978 to commemorate Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week during the first week of May. This date was chosen because two important anniversaries occurred during this time: the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in America on May 7, 1843 and the completion of the transcontinental railroad (by many Chinese laborers) on May 10, 1869. In 1990 Congress voted to expand it from a week to a month long celebration; In May 1992, the month of May was permanently designated as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.”
