Asian & Pacific Islander identity encompasses a wide array of people, cultures, and histories. We recognize and celebrate this diversity.
API Heritage Month
We celebrate our identities year round, but especially during May, Asian & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. In 2022, our celebrations included:
API Book Drive with GNCA and the Nashville Chinese School
Third Thursday Happy Hour
Asian and Pacific Islander Night with Nashville SC
Heritage Month Writers' Rounds with Shoes Off Nashville
APIHM Arts Festival
We're looking forward to 2023! Make sure to follow us for all the details!
API Book Drive
In May 2022, we partnered with the Greater Nashville Chinese Association and the Nashville Chinese School to bring Asian and Pacific Islander authored and illustrated books to students in Nashville and Williamson County. Together, we collected over 150 books and raised over $14,000 for school librarians to purchase API books. Check back in April for our 2023 Book Drive!
