AAPI Heritage Festival.jpgJoin AALDEF this Saturday, May 12th, 2012 at the 33rd Annual Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Festival at the Brooklyn Archway in Dumbo!

The (free) festival, held by the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans (CAPA), is the longest running pan-Asian heritage event nationwide, in honor of AAPI Heritage Month this May. Events will last from 11:00am to 6:00pm, and tens of thousands are expected to attend for the live entertainment and chance to interact with the preeminent AAPI organizations such as the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

AALDEF, along with other AAPI organizations, will be available throughout the day to share information about the important work we do in the AAPI community and to provide opportunities for volunteering, contributing, or finding resources.

We'll be at Water St & Anchorage Pl (Brooklyn Bridge Archway) Brooklyn, NY 10038 from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
