Approximately 38,000 Prince William County residents are Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.
The contributions of the Asian and Pacific Islander American community bring significant economic, social and cultural benefits that are woven into the fabric of the County’s history and development.
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors recently proclaimed May as Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month to recognize the positive impact Asian and Pacific Islander Americans have made to business, the arts, sciences, medicine, law enforcement, the military, education, government and to all areas of life in Prince William County.
The month is set aside to celebrate the sacrifices and contributions the Asian and Pacific Islander community have made to the County and to recognize the leaders and trailblazers who hold a common hope of equal treatment, civil rights and a bright future for Prince William County.
The Board further honored the perseverance of those in the County who reached for their hopes and dreams and encouraged all Prince William residents to join them in celebrating Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month.
