[*This is an online program.]
Artists for Asian American Federation is a fundraiser by Sirui Ma, FAR-NEAR, and friends. As members of the Asian diaspora, the successes of various fundraisers by our peers in the creative industry inspired us to shine light on a cause that is close to each of our hearts. Since the beginning of the pandemic, anti-Asian hate crimes have increased exponentially. As a result of this growing hostility, many Asian businesses both across the U.S. and worldwide are suffering, and the ill-effects of this hostility span far beyond the economic.
In order to offer some support to our communities during this difficult time, we are raising funds for the Asian American Federation, a pan-Asian non-profit representing the collective voice of 70 community based organizations serving 1.3 million Asian Americans in NYC. With your support, AAF pledges to fight anti-Asian hate, provide mental health programs for our communities facing heightened fear and anxiety, and continue their work that leads to more justice and opportunity for Asian immigrants, one of New York’s poorest and most marginalized communities.
