#StopAsianHate – Celebrating AAPI heritage and more this May


May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. More than ever, it's essential to celebrate AAPI heritage through art, education, gratitude, and support for AAPI communities.

In light of the rise in violence against AAPI people and communities, we're hosting a virtual talk with educators and leaders on May 19 as part of our ongoing Himalayan Heritage program series. Together we'll unpack some of the circumstances that lead to AAPI violence. We'll explore the origins of Asian hate, including how stereotypes can lay the groundwork for physical violence, and how communities are fighting back for change!
