To commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in May, University of Washington students, staff, faculty and alumni shared their personal stories of identity in the “No Longer Invisible: In Their Own Words” project.
Stories that highlighted the diversity in language, religion, culture and tradition of the AAPI communities were posted on the UW Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity web site, and displayed as a poster exhibit in the Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center (ECC) for one week.
A reception on May 29 at the Kelly ECC kicked off the exhibit and included remarks from a few of students and staff whose stories were featured in the project. A total of 30 stories were included.
The project was a collaboration between OMA&D, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, the Asian Student Commission and the Asian Pacific Islander American Faculty & Staff Association. To learn more, contact Linda Ando (email@example.com) or Chanira Reang Sperry (firstname.lastname@example.org).
