Thank you to all who came out to our May 11, 2024 AANHPI Heritage Month celebration event. We would like to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation again to our partner City of Olympia Parks staff Olivia and Rachael, our co-sponsors South Puget Sound Community College, APCC, Lacey Parks and Recreation, and all the performers, resource and information table hosts, and food and arts and craft vendors who participated in the event. Your participation added so much to our celebration! We are very grateful to the city and county elected officials, my co-Master of Ceremonies, our wonderful team of interns and support staff, and all the planning committee members and volunteers who helped make this event possible!! We know this event's success could not have happened without you--so THANK YOU!!

Race Dialogue: Change the Dynamics—What's Power Got to do With it

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual race dialogue "Change the dynamics--what's Power got to do with it" on March 16, 2024. We examined and discussed race relations and racism and how we can work together to achieve justice in our community.
