As the Asian American community continues to feel the impact of racism, bullying and harassment related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are compelled to explore the ways in which better representation and three-dimensional portrayals of Asian American characters can counter stereotypes and result in larger societal impact.

They will also unveil their latest PSA, featuring SAG-AFTRA members calling on all Americans to stand against the stigma, xenophobia and harassment so many Asian Americans are still experiencing.
