About AAPI Heritage Month
Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month initially began in 1977 when a resolution was introduced to the House of Representatives, however, it only advocated for the celebration to last for 10 days. In 1991, George H.W. Bush signed a bill passed by Congress to extend the celebration to a month, deeming that the honorary celebration would last a month in May 1991 and May 1992. Later, May was officially designated as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in 1992.
