Call to fight hate by pledging to increase AAPI visibility

An ad that ran in the New York Times encourages people to take the pledge to increase the visibility of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders to stop AAPI hate.

An artistic rendering by Shepard Fairey of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Amanda Nguyen is featured under the headline “I am an American.”

Amanda’s non-profit, RISE, is behind the ad along with Run AAPI and Amplifier, according to Pop Sugar.

“We are front line workers, doctors, teachers, public servants,” the ad reads. “We’ve built this country’s railroads, fed its people, cared for patients, and created some of its most innovative technology. From our excellence to our struggles, our stories are your stories-woven into the fabric of the American dream. Yet much of America has turned a blind eye to our legacy. This country-wide erasure culminates in anti-Asian violence that existed long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, more than ever, the Asian American Pacific Islander community needs to be seen.

“Do you see use. Join us in taking the AAPI visibility pledge

According to Technical Ripon, firms which have taken the pledge include Uber, the Nationwide Basketball Affiliation, Change.org, and the Rockefeller Basis.
