The benefit will feature distinguished speakers, including Stella Li, Executive Vice President of BYD Company Limited and President of BYD Americas; Momo Wang, Director of Illumination, Creator of “Tuzki”, and Asian Hall of Fame Inductee; and multimedia journalist Corein Carter of Forbes. The event will be moderated by Ren Hanami, SAG-AFTRA National Chairman Asian Pacific American Media Committee, who is also an Asian Hall of Fame Inductee and Trauma Advocacy Initiative Chair.
