Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month is observed in the United States during the month of May and recognizes the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. In Old Pasadena, we continue to look for ways to honor all the diversity in our commUNITY and to support equity and inclusion for all people. We stand against violence and in support of tolerance and understanding. Please join us in celebrating AAPI Month!
Nearly 30% of all businesses in Old Pasadena are Asian-owned and many provide uniquely Asian goods and services. This month we are highlighting many of these businesses on our Instagram account, so follow us at @oldpasadena.
