Drawing on our Asian American Experiences

For Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM), we asked our staff to draw what AAPIHM or what being Asian American means to them. With this open interpretation, we received an array of drawings that ranged from pop culture references to images of resistance and activism. We hope that you will be able to see an experience similar to your own reflected below and be inspired to create your own drawing to celebrate AAPIHM Share your drawings with us using #DrawAAPIHM
