WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today marking Asian Pacific American Heritage Month:

“Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of a diverse community.  These include a storied history of military service and countless achievements in science, education, business, sports, and the arts.  The Asian Pacific American community brings something unique and important to the American story, and I join in celebrating its contributions throughout the month of May as we mark Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.  May we continue to be enriched as a nation thanks to our Asian and Pacific Islander American communities for generations to come.”
