A weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Pacific Islanders from all corners of our community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, deejays, and activists. PowerLeeGirls hosts, Miko Lee [1] and Jalena Keane-Lee [2] begin their series “We Are the Leaders”, highlighting the AAPI history of resistance and change from ancestors to the leaders on the ground today. Utilizing the dual pandemics of COIVD and systemic racism this series will serve as a tool to politically activate the AAPI community and amplify ways to support each other. “We are the leaders” is inspired by ancestor activist Grace Lee Boggs quote, “We are the leaders we’ve been looking for.” Tonight's show features APIENC [3] leader Sammie Ablaza Wills and disability rights advocate Mia Ives-Rublee. Resources mentioned in the show include: Sins invalid [4] Mia Mingus [5] Alice Wong [6] - Disability Visibility Project Yuh-Line Niou [7] Senator Tammy Duckworth [8] Thank you to the San Francisco Foundation [9] for making this series possible.
