Councilmember Karen Koslowitz, D-Forest Hills, will be co-hosting an Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Event at Russell Sage Junior High School on Tuesday, May 24.
The event, which Koslowitz will be co-hosting with New York City Comptroller John Liu, is designed to reach out to the diverse residents of Forest Hills and Queens.
“I am proud and honored to celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month with Comptroller John Liu and the residents of the 29th District,” Koslowitz said. “Queens is the most diverse county in the United States and celebrating the cultures that create this wonderful diversity is very important.
Several Queens-based groups, including South Asian Youth Action, Asian Americans for Equality and the Coalition for Asian American Children and Families will be in attendance.
Koslowitz will be using the occasion to honor Dr. Madhulika Khandelwal, Director of the Asian/American Center and Associate Professor in Urban Studies Department at Queens College and Arvind Mahankali, a Forest Hills spelling bee champion.
The event will start at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24 at Russell Sage Junior High School. To RSVP, e-mail the office of Karen Koslowitz at Koslowitz@council.nyc.gov or call 718-544-8800 with the number of guests.
