AAPI Heritage Month Resources

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month 

In the month of May, we take time to reflect and celebrate the important role that Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs) have played in our history.

In recent years, the Washington REALTORS® DEI Committee has partnered and built a strong relationship with AREAA, an organization who is dedicated to promoting sustainable homeownership opportunities in Asian American communities by creating a powerful national voice for housing and real estate professionals that serve this dynamic market (Learn More about AREAA Here). 

AREAA is a hub for information and fair housing resources within the AAPI community, and we encourage you to honor this month with us through education and exploration!

Explore resources from AREAA, the Asian Pacific Cultural Center, the Asian American Foundation & more below!

Self Evident:
"Self Evident challenges the narratives of where we come from, where we belong, and where we're going — by telling Asian America's stories. With host Cathy Erway, we present reported narratives, personal stories, and community conversations that tackle today's tough questions about identity, cultural change, and nationhood."


Asian Americana:
"Asian Americana is a podcast about slices of distinctly Asian American culture and history. Asian Americana is also a term based on the idea that Asian Americans are a rich and inherent part of the American cultural and historical tapestry. We weren't just present; we've actively built and shaped this nation with endless stories and contributions."
