Asian American Heritage Month

May is Asian American Heritage Month
The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
Throughout the month of May, Gwinnett County Government will join in paying tribute to the generations of Asian/Pacific Americans who have enriched our community and are instrumental in its future success.
