Standing United with our Asian Pacific Islander Community

WE STAND UNITED WITH OUR ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER COMMUNITY AND CONDEMN ANTI-ASIAN VIOLENCE.

The race-based hate and attacks against our community has been an ongoing issue we've faced and it's now been elevated due to racist and xenophobic rhetoric surrounding the pandemic. Many of these incidents of hate often go unreported. We urge anyone who has been a victim to seek help, and know that your are not alone. If you are in need of any resources or want to learn how you can support, take a look at the list of resources below.

At APICC, we intend to continue using art and culture as a gateway to healing, resiliency, empathy and unity. As always, we encourage artists in our community to continue to use art to uplift the stories of our Asian Pacific American communities and rise against the racist cultural structures that divide us. 

In the spirit of cultivating awareness and unity, we invite you to attend our next program featuring a live screening of all five short films in our Legacy & Lineage series on Sunday, March 7 at 2pm. The program will open with a statement from Producer/Director Laura Priscilla Paule followed by the screening and a Q&A discussion with artists, Francis Wong, Genny Lim, Isabelle Thuy Pelaud and Sammay Dizon, moderated by Valerie Soe (Loveboat Taiwan, 2019). The films explore the reasons that drive these outstanding artists and legacies that may point to the direction of the future of Asian American artists in San Francisco.
