AAPI Heritage Month

May is AAPI Heritage Month, honoring the contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islanders to our history, society, and culture.

Daniel Ken Inouye, Then-Highest Ranking Asian American Politician in U.S. History

Born to Japanese immigrants, Daniel Ken Inouye was a U.S. Senator from Hawaii from 1963 until his death in 2012. He witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor and later overcame discrimination to serve in the U.S. military. He earned his law degree from the George Washington University Law School in 1952. In June 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded him the Medal of Honor. Until Kamala Harris’s inauguration in 2021 as vice president, he was the highest-ranking Asian American politician in U.S. history, third in the presidential line of succession as president pro tempore of the U.S. Senate.
