Happy Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

This post comes a bit late, but perhaps better later than never. Happy Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

You can read the official presidential proclamation here, the kick-off statement from Secretary Locke here and the official Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month website here. The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, co-chaired by Secretaries Locke and Duncan, even has its own website. You can also read the presidential executive order that established this initiative (Executive Order 13515, “Increasing Participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Federal Programs”).

Of course, every month is APAHM at the Angry Asian Buddhist blog. I wish I had time to write more, but it will have to wait for another day. Still, this is an occasion that the entire Buddhist community can celebrate!
