This blog carnival was updated four times on May 30, 2013.

Asian-Americans are the fastest growing minority in the United States, growing by 46% between the 2000 and 2010 censuses. Also, May marks Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

In celebration of the many contributions of women, mothers and families of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage to the United States, I am pleased to introduce this blog carnival by MomsRising.org. Below you will find a series of blog posts by Asian Pacific Americans from all walks of life. Please show your support by leaving a comment or two, sharing with your social media followers – and celebrating with us! Ua tsaug!
