SFI & Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

SFI AAPI Heritage Month

To honor and acknowledge Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, throughout May we have explored the intersection between SFI’s policy priorities and the AAPI community.

We explored the intersection of our priorities and AAPI history and heritage on our social media platforms. We featured notable historical figures, discussed policy connections, and shared action items every week focused on voting rights, foreign policy, and domestic de-militarization. Recognizing the value and importance of these topics, we are sharing all of the links and resources here, too. We encourage you to click through, read these posts, and share those that resonate with you. We hope you’ll learn something new by diving into these materials – we sure did!

Asian American Pacific Islander Roundtable

SFI is dedicated to ensuring all voices are heard, and we strive to grow our membership to be representative of all military families. As part of this effort, we are hosting a four-part series of Roundtable events this year to highlight different underrepresented families within the military community.

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we are hosting Many Voices One Action: A Conversation with the Asian American Pacific Islander Military Community.

During this roundtable discussion for AAPI military veterans, partners, and family members, ​participants will connect, share their personal stories, and brainstorm collective action.

We have invited two amazing, highly-informative guest speakers and a moderator who will facilitate a meaningful conversation. We have no doubt the roundtable will inform and inspire! Please RSVP to join this closed-door event.
