In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Montgomery County Council is expected to host a special event with community leaders to discuss issues that are important for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the county.

The event will feature a panel discussion about public policy issues and a recognition ceremony for panelists and participants, according to a news release.

“The Asian American and Pacific Islander community is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse groups of residents who live in our County,” Council President Berliner said in a statement. “Our shared history would be incomplete without the contributions made by the Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders who call Montgomery County home. This special event is one way that the Council can recognize these contributions and explore issues that are particularly important to these communities.”

Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting which is open to the public and will take place in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month  is celebrated nationwide throughout the month of May and acknowledges the roles that Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have played in the United States history while celebrating their achievements and contributions.
