During Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we proudly celebrate Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States and pay tribute to the generations who have enriched and strengthened our nation. The U.S. is home to millions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, representing a diverse array of cultures and traditions. Many serve here at the Department of State and throughout the U.S. government. We celebrate their contributions. In January, 2021, the White House issued a memorandum condemning and combating racism against Asian American and Pacific Islanders and in March, 2021, announced additional actions to respond to Anti-Asian violence, xenophobia, and bias. The Department of State strongly supports these actions. We stand with the AAPI community and are grateful for their talent, contributions, and innovation across our nation.
