This month, BAC has been hosting an AAPI Month of Action, using their platform to feature organizations working on the ground against the continued racist violence perpetrated against East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian, West Asian, Pacific Islander, Asian American and any individual of the Asian diaspora, led by AAPI staff members Emily Goes and Jess McLeod.
In the midst of grief and continued violence, they’ve seen the need to create a space centering joy, fellowship and ease for the AAPI community. On Tue, May 31 from 5pm – 7pm EST, AAPAC will join Broadway Advocacy Coalition and Ma-Yi Theater Company for a “H(AAPI) Hour Celebration” at Sour Mouse NYC, 110 Delancey Street. To mark the end of AAPI month, we’re coming together after being isolated for so long at a time of increased anxiety for the Asian community. They are also celebrating their special Tony Awards recognition.
