CJ Logistics America recognizes Asian / Pacific American Heritage Month in May

May marks the beginning of Asian/Pacific American (AAPI) Heritage Month – a celebration of Asian / Pacific Americans in the United States. At CJ Logistics America’s corporate headquarters and locations across the country, displays and activities will recognize the contributions and achievements of Asian / Pacific Americans.

To celebrate the occasion, the corporate headquarters’ upcoming monthly town hall meeting will feature a group of employees engaging in a meaningful panel discussion about Asian culture, values, and the pathways to success as an Asian-American in the U.S.

May was chosen as the month in commemoration of the first Japanese immigration to the United States on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869, after Chinese immigrants were most of the workers who laid the tracks.

Asian/Pacific references the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).
