Asian American Heritage Month

What is Asian American Heritage Month?

Asian American Heritage Month (AAHM) will be held from January 19-30, 2021 at Northeastern University. This collection of events is just a small taste of the diversity that represents Asian America – both at Northeastern, and beyond. Our hope is that together, these events will spark discussion and inquiry about where we have come from as Asian Americans, and where we are going. Stop by, take a look, learn more about who we are.

While Asian American Heritage Month is traditionally celebrated in May, we celebrate in January to give our community an opportunity to fully participate in and enjoy the month of events. Our heritage week includes the Day of Remembrance which honors the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 which sent 120,000 Japanese Americans into internment camps during World War II.
