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. Tonight Hosts Tracy Nguyen [1] and Miko Lee [2] join our AACRE [3] colleagues to discuss how we as Asian Americans stand in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter [4] and recognize the anti-Black racism within our own communities. Guests include Nate Tan from Asian Prisoner Support Committee [5], Fatima Zehra Ladha from Alliance of South Asians Taking Action [6], Mykhou Vue from Hmong Innovating Politics [7], and Bianca Mabute-Louie from Network on Religion and Justice [8].
