The year 2021 saw a nearly 150% increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans. Fueled by both restlessness about the pandemic as well as racism rooted in the past, the tremendous increase in hate crimes is both horrifying and unacceptable.
Our goal is to celebrate the AAPI community using the power of art. We hope that by showcasing the countless beautiful aspects of Asian culture, we can raise awareness about the recent historical hate crimes against Asian Americans and unite people while celebrating our diverse people and cultures.
