Inductees, influencers, artists join forces against hate
To fight anti-Asian violence, the Asian Hall of Fame is launching a new season that promotes cross-cultural collaboration and highlights Asian contributions. Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas will host events. The Induction Ceremony will take place in the historic Alex Theatre after a series of forums, celebrations, and fundraisers. Season Sponsors include Wells Fargo Bank, Mot Hennessy, Robert Chinn Foundation, and Lily Liu.
“As geopolitical conflicts intensify, assault against Asians will escalate. Asian Hall of Fame is dedicated to overcoming anti-Asian hate by accelerating collaboration, amplifying trauma recovery, and correcting the undervaluation of Asian contributions to the country and the world,” states Maki Hsieh, President & CEO.
Fundraisers support hate crime and trauma survivors with brain injury recovery. A new medical guild will help guide the Trauma Recovery Program. Policy forums will inform the new Make Hate Crime A Crime™ initiative that helps expedite hate crime prosecution. Asian Hall of Fame also activated its Crisis Relief Fund, and the Mother’s Day Charity Concert will raise funds to ship relief packages to Ukraine.
To accelerate iconic collaborations in media, technology, and entertainment, Asian Hall of Fame is strategically located at the Los Angeles studio of The Door’s guitarist Robby Krieger. It is a Founding Supporter of the Academy Museum along with its founder Robert Chinn Foundation.
Its Digital Equity Program will launch a mobile game, audiobook, and music album this year. The Asian-inspired DRAGON ZOOM© game advances women in technology. The audiobook Chinn Up is a 180-year Asian-American saga. Its second music album features Maki Mae with Robby Krieger (The Doors), Danny Seraphine (Chicago), John Paris (Earth, Wind & Fire), Hiro Yamamoto (Soundgarden), amongst others.
The fourth annual Fellowship Program awards $25,000 worth of grants and work experience to each ESL, special needs, and diversity fellow. Incoming fellows will be announced at flagship events. Early bird discounts are offered at www.asianhalloffame.org/tickets.
