Every February, Northeastern hosts Asian American Heritage Week (AAHW) with the goals of building community, raising awareness for APIDA issues all while celebrating our history, culture, and impact in the United States.
This year, we bring you "Multifaceted" to celebrate the different cultures unique narratives within the Asian diaspora and how our heritage influences various aspects of our lives.
Overall, AAHW seeks to bring together members of both the APIDA and greater Northeastern community for a week of growth and fun.
**What does APIDA mean?**
APIDA stands for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American and we choose to use this term to be more mindful and inclusive of individuals who make up Asian America.
