In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) from artists within our communities. Inspired by ‘The More You Know’ campaign, the current administration and Asians who think this is stuff you should know by now.
It is just before the end of Asian Pacific American heritage month, and before you forget that you needed to remember us, a reminder of the things You Should Know By Now. As you can see in my PSA video -- this was inspired by the fact that artists like myself, Jenny Yang, Taz Ahmed and more were honored at The White House LAST YEAR as Champions of Change in Asian American and Pacific Islander Art & Storytelling. That program does not exist any longer this year. No Asians invited to the White House. Unless you count the Russians.
