Asian Heritage Month Resources

May is Asian Heritage Month, and it’s dedicated to reflecting and celebrating the people of Asian Descent (East Asia, Southern Asia, Western, Central, and Southeast Asia). We’ve compiled Asian resources and recommendations containing shows, movies, podcasts, local businesses, organizations, and so much more.

We want to hear your recommendations! If you have a favourite piece of media that celebrates people of Asian descent, we welcome you to share it with us so we can add it to our list! Just email: a.nguyen@theuwsa.ca.
