Honoring Asian and Pacific Islanders: A Letter From the Director

May was selected as the month to honor the AAPI community because it commemorates the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in May of 1843, as well as the completion of America’s transcontinental railroad in May 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks for that literal and symbolic linking of our nation were Chinese immigrants. In the more than 150 years since, the AAPI community has continued to grow across this country, with some of the most exponential growth occurring in recent years. The White House AAPI Initiative estimates that this community grew by 43 percent between 2000 and 2010, and now includes more than 15 million individuals. It is projected to grow by another 35 million people over the next 40 years. Even though the AAPI community is one of our fastest growing communities, it is often left out of discussions of diversity, particularly in law enforcement.
