May Forum 2020

Theme: Heritage & Engagement
Date and time: May 30, 2020 11:00am-12:00pm
Location: Zoom meeting (link will be distributed later)


May is the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Throughout our Nation’s history, Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent have made significant contributions to every aspect of our society. We, as the current generation of Chinese Americans living in Minnesota, are proud to continue this tradition.

As a group of community volunteers, we decided to start a grassroots forum to share our heritage, our community engagement, and our contribution to the Minnesota society at large. This forum series is designed as a platform for all Asia American communities both now and in the future.
