President Joe Biden, on Monday, signed a bill to establish a committee that will study the possible establishment of a national museum dedicated to preserving the history and culture of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs).

“Today, I’m honored to sign into law something that’s long overdue, the National Museum of Asian and Pacific American History and Culture here in Washington, D.C,” Biden said during the event. “Throughout our history, Asian American, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders have literally shaped the history and the contours of this country,” he added.
