Berman Celebrates Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month

Thursday, May 4, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Berman (D-Palo Alto) invites community members to attend an event to honor the 24th Assembly District’s Asian and Pacific Islander community in recognition of Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month.

Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month is recognized each May in celebration and appreciation of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have provided lasting contributions to communities and enrichment to the economy and culture. According to a 2015 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau, roughly 152,000 Asian and Pacific Islanders live in the 24th Assembly District.

“Asian and Pacific Islanders represent nearly one-third of the 24th Assembly District’s total population. I am pleased that an increasing number choose to call our district home. This is a testament to the district’s quality of life, education and employment opportunities, and culturally diverse population, all of which the Asian and Pacific Islander community have and continue to enhance. I look forward to honoring their contributions and achievements.”
