On today, the final day of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we reflect on and celebrate the contributions and influence of the Asian community to the history, culture, and achievements of this nation. The United States is enriched and bettered by the diverse, intelligent, and creative groups who push us towards progress. Since the onset of the coronavirus, the AAPI community has faced an alarming uptick in hatred and violence, and the Cathedral will continue to stand up against bigotry in defense of our AAPI community members. Earlier this Spring, we gathered on the West Front Stairs to denounce violence, commit to love, and pledge to serve our neighbors ever more inclusively. Join us in our mission to fight for justice wherever hatred is found.
