More than 100 union leaders attended SEIU’s first Asian Pacific Islander (API) Leadership Summit in Anaheim in August. The Summit’s theme was “Together We Rise” and sought to unite and empower member leaders and staff to build power and to organize against the threats facing the labor movement and our communities.
May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. It’s a time when we celebrate the culture, traditions and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States and recognize their many contributions to our communities and our nation.
