Community Awards

We want to also recognize unsung heroes in the APA community. HERITAGE SF aims to celebrate those who made significant contributions to our culture, yet have not received the proportional praise. If you would like to nominate an outstanding individual or organization, please fill out the form below. Nominations are now closed.


APAHM Legacy Award

Presented by Alaska Airlines, this award acknowledges the spirit of the APA pioneers who have left an indelible mark on the broader community, history, and culture. This year’s award is presented in memory of Mayor Edwin M Lee, who was one of the early advocates of this event. His tireless efforts as an immigrant rights attorney and community advocate, as well as his tenure as the first Asian American mayor in San Francisco have paved the way for future APA leadership.


Jeremy Lin Foundation Award

This award is presented to an outstanding community activist, whose work serves youth and provides hope, empowerment, and leadership development.
