Washington, DC – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding the Lunar New Year:
“The Lunar New Year provides a time for families to gather, honor ancestors, pay tribute to traditions, celebrate a year of hard work and prepare for a prosperous new year. The events celebrating the Lunar New Year throughout our nation and across the country highlight our country’s cultural vibrancy.
