This month we celebrate Asian-American Heritage Month and recognize the incredible achievements of the thousands of Asian-American members of our Union. 150 years ago, the railroad and farm labor of our ancestors connected the country and fed its citizens. Today, talented and diligent engineers, scientists, healthcare professionals, and legal professionals connect the California power grid, protect the most vulnerable residents, and heal our communities. We are proud of our contributions. We are also outraged that we are still dealing with the anti-Asian hate that has plagued our nation for 150 years.
