The Asian Hall of Fame Forum brings together notable leaders.
In May, the Asian Hall of Fame will host its annual policy forum, which will take place during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The series will include notable figures and will serve as a guide for the Asian Hall of Fame’s Make Hate Crime A CrimeTM program, which will start this year. Lifetime Achievement Award inductee and Congresswoman Judy Chu, as well as Congressman Ted Lieu, were among the previous presenters. The Asian Hall of Fame website hosts a virtual Forum that is open to the public for free.
By raising public knowledge of Asian contributions in the United States and around the world, the Asian Hall of Fame combats anti-Asian prejudice.
The Tech & Entertainment Venture, Team Member Fellowships, Brain Injury Endowment, and Make Hate Crime A Crime™ are all supported by year-round programming.
Last year’s Forum advised adding a hate crime option to crime scene reports, similar to how rape and domestic violence were reported successfully in the past.
Make Hate Crime A CrimeTM recommends adding a hate crime option to make reporting more efficient.
“78% of hate crime survivors are Asian women. It is unconscionable that violence against Asians continues to escalate in America. Asian Hall of Fame is committed to advancing advocacy as one of its four philanthropic pillars, and turning the tide against hate,” stated Maki Hsieh, President & CEO.
