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

“During Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we celebrate the many contributions to our national life by a vibrant community with a proud history.  In every aspect of our society, including business, government, education, science, sports, the arts, and our armed services, members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities continue to play a crucial role in shaping American history. The rich diversity of cultures among these communities enhances the American story and strengthens our nation.  I join in thanking our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities for all they have done to help forge a more perfect union for the benefit of generations of Americans to come.”
