Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is Coming Soon

As we look toward May, we are already hard at work planning three different in-person events and one online event to celebrate our cultures, heritages, and identities. If you would like to be involved in any part of this planning, big or small please email inclusivefairfield@gmail.com and consider attending our Zoom planning meeting on Sunday night, April 24th @ 7:30pm.

Below are the fun activities we are planning. You do not have to be of Asian decent to attend, learn, or volunteer at any of these events. We also encourage Asians from all areas of CT to come and take comfort in being together in a safe space.


It takes a village to create these events for free! I hope you join me in working to provide our community with excellent programming for this upcoming May!

I am unsure if we will get enough resources or hands to pull off all 4 of these events so we may have to choose one or two depending on how many volunteers & resources we can gather.


Grades - K-5 - Story time followed by Arts & Crafts session This event will be in-person. The author and the arts & craft activities will be be revealed after we confirm the author and after our committee meets on Sunday, 4/24 @ 7:30pm


Grades 6-12 - Career Day
