No Longer Invisible: Asian American & Pacific Islander Voices

No Longer Invisible Header
To commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in May, UW students, staff, faculty and alumni share their personal stories of identity in a project titled “No Longer Invisible: In Their Own Words.”
These stories highlight the diversity in language, religion, culture and tradition of the AAPI communities and are collected from interested volunteers. The project kicked off in 2014 with a reception at the Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center that included a poster exhibit and remarks from students and staff who were featured.
Now in its second year, the project is a collaboration between the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, the Asian Student Commission and the Asian Pacific Islander American Faculty & Staff Association.
