National Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is Asian American Pacific Islander American Heritage month, and Southern California Edison is proud to recognize the contributions of Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent to our communities.

The Asian American Pacific Islander American Heritage Month has a long history.  In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a joint resolution designating an annual week-long celebration, and in 1992, President George H.W. Bush extended the celebration to a full month.

The month of May was selected in commemoration of the earliest Japanese immigrants who arrived in May 1843, and in recognition of the completion of the transcontinental railroad in May 1869, a feat that was accomplished through the hard work of many Chinese immigrants.
