If you read my column on the AALDEF blog, it’s time for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!  May 1st is our day. Come join me on Zoom for a live Check-in, just to say hello and see how you’re doing.

It’s on Zoom Friday, May 1, at 11:00 am Pacific/ 2:00pm Eastern.

Take a break and Zoom with me as some of the U.S. comes back to life, but the smart ones will be Zooming on Emil Amok’s Takeout.

I’ll have special guests who will talk about why this APA Heritage Month is different from all the rest.

And I’ll have you there to tell your story on zoom about the pandemic.

If you can’t be there live on zoom, it will be live on my FaceBook page at Emil Guillermo Media.

So come join me for an Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Lumpia party. (Bring your own lumpia).
