Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month


Join Dallas College throughout May for a series of virtual events celebrating the history and culture of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) in the United States.

We'll be honoring APIDA achievements, but also discussing the challenges which people in the community still face, including hate speech and hate crimes related to the coronavirus pandemic. Heritage Month events will include guest speakers, panel discussions, concert performances and cultural celebrations.
