Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Yuji Ichioka, an American historian and civil rights activist best known for his work in Asian American studies. As an adjunct professor, he coined the term “Asian American.” Ichioka helped establish the Asian American studies program at UCLA, and with his wife, founded the Yuji Ichioka and Emma Gee Endowment for Social Justice and Immigration Studies at UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center.

Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Dalip Singh Saund, the first Sikh American, the first Asian American, and the first Indian American to be elected to the U.S. Congress.
Saund first emigrated to the U.S. to continue his education in agriculture. After becoming a naturalized citizen, he ran for and won numerous local government positions, including a judgeship, before winning a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where he advocated for farmers and was a fierce supporter of the 1957 Civil Rights bill.
