Asian Heritage Month Statement by Speaker Corey Johnson

“Today marks the start of Asian Heritage Month. This is a month when we honor the contributions of Asian Americans to our City and our country. The first Asian Americans made their way to New York City in the early 19th Century, and since then they have played an incredibly important role in helping make us the greatest city in the world. I am proud of my own Asian heritage and look forward to learning more about it.”
