Reflections: Utah Pacific Islander Community
"This month is a time of recognition and celebration...It is about inclusivity, acceptance, love, respect, and appreciation for who we are and how we contribute positively to this country."
"Diversity is what makes Utah special to me. When we actually take the time to learn and celebrate the unique differences of all Utahns, it makes us better people. Today, I honor and celebrate all Asians and Pacific Islanders, specifically the first Maoris who settled in Utah back in 1884 and the Samoans in 1898."
