May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in Federal Way

The month of May has been recognized as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in Federal Way, thanks to a recent city proclamation.

Presented by Federal Way City Councilmember Leandra Craft, the May 18 proclamation reads in part:

Federal Way is “proud to be home to a large Asian American and Pacific Islander population that contributes greatly to the prosperity and enrichment of our city and region.”

Diversity is a core strength of Federal Way and the city celebrates “the importance of inclusion to building a brighter future for all of our citizens.”

The city recognized the powerful and the painful chapters of the country’s history, and “is committed to providing lasting support to ensure that our city is equitable and welcoming to all people,” the proclamation reads.

Federal Way Mayor and the Federal Way City Council encouraged residents to observe the proclamation of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and its dedication to honor their contributions throughout May.
