May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month – a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants. Check out these resources:

On May 6th in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order creating the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The agency was responsible for one of the many relief programs set up soon after Roosevelt entered the White House. Created under the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act, which Roosevelt signed a month earlier, it sought to ease the effects of the Great Depression. By 1940, as the economy surged as a result of defense industry production, WPA programs were sharply curtailed. In 1943, Congress effectively ended many programs created under the ERA Act — including the WPA. Check out these resources from the CGP:
