Four Queens lawmakers introduce resolutions to mark Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month


The largest group of AAPI New Yorkers ever elected to the City Council introduced two resolutions on Thursday, May 19, to celebrate the role of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in New York City in honor of AAPI Heritage Month. 

Among the group are four Queens lawmakers — Council members Linda Lee, Shekar Krishnan, Sandra Ung and Julie Won — who joined Brooklyn City Council member Shahana Hanif to introduce the resolutions at an AAPI Heritage Month rally held by the Asian American Federation in front of City Hall in Manhattan.
