This May, WR Immigration is celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. For nearly two centuries, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been important contributors to American society, culture, and the economy. AAPI is an umbrella term that includes cultures and ethnicities from the entire Asian continent (including East, Southeast and South Asia). The diverse achievements of this community touch every sector of our nation, from atomic science, to filmmaking, to civil rights. This May, we are excited to spotlight the unique cultures and stories that comprise this community.
We also believe celebrating AAPI history means acknowledging the unique challenges the AAPI community has faced, especially in the context of immigration. In this vein, WR Immigration invites our friends, colleagues, and clients to take our AAPI Immigration Quiz. We created the quiz with the aim of stimulating conversation about what it means to be a “nation of immigrants” and a member of the AAPI community. We hope you learn something new about the history, tenacity, and extraordinary contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States this month, and we hope you continue the learning all year round. We are also excited to learn from you! Tag #GrowWithWRImmigration to share your thoughts and reflections.
