Upcoming Events: Asian American & Pacific Islander Cultural Festival
AAPA will organize and host a half day, outdoor, multicultural event in the month of May (tentative for May 14, 1pm-4:30pm) during AAPI heritage month to celebrate diversity and promote understanding and knowledge of the different Asian communities in the County of Santa Clara.
AAPA will be collaborating on this event with other community partners including, BAYouth, AAPI Silicon Valley (student organization) who will partner to bring a youth-led and youth/student perspective. (BAYouth and AAPI SV student organization have previously been involved in participating in Stop Asian Hate rallies, donating to the homeless, and organizing the “I love my community” video-essay competition.)
Our event program will include artistic performances, storytellers, introduction by youth and senior leaders at the event about promoting cultural education and celebration of the unique contributions of various Asian community groups representing Santa Clara County’s diversity including groups from Korean, Chinese, Indonesia , Japan, Indian and other communities.

The goal of the event is to unify the voices of the AAPI community and its allies, combating injustice, and creating a more accepting and inclusive County for all.
We will focus story telling and introduction from youth led and intergenerational partnering with the AAPA to highlight and inspire the event participants to embrace diversity, intersectionality, intergenerational unity while covering topics such as AAPI history in America to educate the public on the beauty of each culture and foster solidarity and cultural learning. The event will be a free event open to the public.
This project has been funded by County of Santa Clara's Division of Equity and Social Justice Community Engagement Mini Grant and Civic Leadership Academy grant.

This organization is dedicated to providing a better learning environment for our elementary, middle and high school students so that they will be well equipped to becoming contributing successful citizens and future leaders.
