Asia in America Open House Kick-Off Celebration
Part of the Citi Series on Asia in America
Globalization and the rise of Asia will dramatically change America in the 21st century. As never before, Asian-Americans are at the center of, and leading, those changes. May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and this season Asia Society celebrates the increasing importance of "Asia in America" with a themed series of programs representing the importance of Asia and Asian-Americans across the fields of arts and culture, policy, politics, business, and education. We also honor and recognize some of the vibrant Asian-American community organizations with which we partner in presenting exciting programming all year round.
