The Kitchen Table Stories Project is leading an effort to engage the community in a celebration of ASAPI Heritage Month in Evanston. An informational website has been created to offer educational, social service, and social action resources, as well as a calendar of local and virtual activities and events throughout May. Posters can be found in storefronts of local businesses all over Evanston supporting the initiative, and the Main-Dempster Mile, Central Street Evanston, and Downtown Evanston business district organizations are featuring local Asian-owned businesses with interviews and stories through their local news outlets and on social media. www.kitchentablestoriesproject.com
