APAAROC P.I.E. 2013 Honorees
This project integrates photography with technology to tell the life stories of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) who have made significant contributions as Pioneers, Innovators and Entrepreneurs to benefit their communities and society at large. Through the use of a mobile exhibit and the ability to access information via technology, we are all pleased and proud to highlight the good works of local APAs in the Greater Rochester Area. We hope to foster and encourage APAs to take prominent leadership in strengthening and appreciating our community's resources and diversity.
During APA Heritage Month, our kick-off celebration begins with recognizing these five honorees. We invite the community to nominate other prominent APA nominees in their respective categories to be showcased in the future. Click here to submit a nomination.
"See Us Now...Greater Rochester's Asian American Community" premieres December 10, 2013 through Monday, January 27, 2014, Mon-Fri., 9 am - 5 pm., Rochester City Hall Link Gallery, 30 Church Street. Free Admission. Don't miss it -- looking back at the APA community over the past ten years!
