As people of varied ethnicities, diverse backgrounds, and rich cultures, we must find pride in our unique hxtories while embracing our intersections of our struggles. We must go forward, recognize the past, and grow. Unity is diversity is crucial in order for us to acknowledge the systemic oppression we have all faced. Through allyship and solidarity, we can attempt to combat the idea that our different cultures are homogenous. We combat the idea that we are the model minority and that we are incapable of standing in solidarity with other communities of color. We combat the idea that we are politically, socially passive. Rather, we are made up of diverse communities that are complex, nuanced and have shown a long hxtory of resistance, activism and social movements. Join us to celebrate our diversity and our unity throughout this Asian Pacific Culture Week and during Asian Pacific Culture Night Market!

Asian Pacific Culture Night Market (APCN) is the climactic finale to APCW. APCN features both cultural, traditional, and modern performances by students and professional groups. This year will include a NIGHT MARKET, a first in APCN history. The night market will have a variety of vendors selling food, arts & crafts, trinkets, and more!
