APIDA Heritage Month – Celebrating the Accomplishments of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American Members of the Legal Profession

APIDA Heritage Month 2021 posterIn celebration of APIDA Heritage Month, the UW Law Library has created a web display celebrating the accomplishments of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American members of the legal profession.  See the UW APIDA Heritage Month site for more information on campus-wide virtual events.

This display is the creation of the Law Library’s Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity subcommittee and is the latest in a series of displays recognizing and celebrating diversity in the legal profession.  We’ve also celebrated Black History Month, Middle Eastern ​North African ​Heritage Month, Latinx Heritage Month, and Native November.

The Libraries at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are dedicated to the practices of social justice, diversity, and equality among our staff, students, collections, and services. As part of the campus libraries community, the Law Library is committed to creating an inclusive environment for both staff and patrons where individuals are actively included and respected, diverse perspectives are valued and encouraged, and staff respond respectfully and effectively to people of many cultures, languages, classes, races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, abilities, and other diversity factors.
