Why do we celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in May? 

The first Japanese immigrants to arrive in the United States was on May 7, 1843 and on May 10, 1869 also known as Golden Spike Day was the completion of the first transcontinental railroad system in the U.S. Chinese immigrants were a major part of the railroad system, which stretched from the West Coast to the East Coast. According to Building the Transcontinental Railroad: How 20,000 Chinese Immigrants Made It Happen, between 15,000 to 20,000 Chinese immigrants helped with the construction of the railroad even though James Strobridge saw immigrants as unfit for the job. Nevertheless, railroads still needed workers and many white people were not interested in this job. (History.com) Congress passed a legislation to designate May as Asian American Heritage Month, referencing May 7 and May 10 as two important dates in 1990.
