16th Annual Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Celebration

This year, we honor generations of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans (APIA) who have enriched our country’s history. This year's theme is “Sharing Comfort, Community, and Care." Our in-person celebration will feature Minh Lê, award-winning author of “Green Lantern: Legacy” for DC Comics. Live entertainment provided by UC San Diego’s own Asayake Taiko and Raas Ruckas, award-winning West-Indian dance team. In addition, we are very excited to present scholarship awards to our UC San Diego undergraduate, graduate, and alumni scholars.

Our calendar of events for 2022 are organized by UC San Diego undergraduates, APIMEDA Programs and Services, Cross-Cultural Center, S.P.A.C.E.S., Asian and Pacific-Islander Student Alliance (APSA) Student Organization, and Kaibigang Pilipin@ on cultural experiences. Our programs invite you to help us grow awareness of intersecting Asian and Pacific Islander American identities, celebrations, stories, and empowerment. Empowering community through reflection and recognition means coming together to show compassion, care, and critical perspectives in achieving social equity and justice for and with, Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.
