May is Asian Heritage Month.
This month allows space to learn, reflect and celebrate the many contributions made by people of Asian Heritage.
And, most importantly, it reminds us to come together to combat Anti-Asian racism and discrimination.
We recognize the experiences of the PHC community are diverse, and so for this Asian Heritage Month, the communications team is handing YOU the pen on what is shared.
We want to post what you want to see, we want to tell the stories you want to hear and promote the events that you want to attend, so we’re asking for your help.
If you are of Asian Heritage and have a story you would like shared as part of Asian Heritage Month, please send us an email.
If you know of an event happening in celebration of this month that you feel we should promote, please contact us. If you have a colleague you would like to recognize, or a reflection to share on your lived experience, we would love to hear from you.
We empathize that the feelings and memories brought forward by this month can be complex and we want to make sure you are taking care of yourself first. Please look to these resources if you are in need of additional support.
If you’re comfortable, we hope you reach out so we can work with you to tell your story.
Deadline for submissions is May 24, 2022.
Submissions can come in the form of written pieces, photos or videos. If you have a unique way to share your story, please let us know. Submissions may be used on other platforms, including social media. We will work with contributors to ensure stories are communicated respectfully and accurately.
