Los Angeles benefits in myriad ways from the contributions and influence of the AAPI community. We see it in the fabric of our city – and we get to experience it on the streets. During Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we look back at how CicLAvia events have connected neighbors to the rich history, art, culture, and people all around them.
These photos offer a few glimpses of how the AAPI community has touched countless regions throughout LA.
