Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month by Supporting AAPI-Owned

May is the month to celebrate Asian American Pacific Islanders and to educate ourselves on history and accomplishments. In addition to educating and celebrating, we encourage you to join us in supporting AAPI-owned shops. A few of our favorites are below, but be sure to check out curated lists from The Skimm, The Strategist, and Self Magazine. Don't forget that while Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is in May, we can celebrate AAPI year-round.
