the why

To highlight and amplify the AAPI Community that reflects the beautiful diversity of Chicago. This initiative aims to lift up the AAPI community while honoring their contributions, achievements, and presence in our city.


In a social climate where the AAPI community has suffered immensely,  this is a unique opportunity to stand in solidarity and bring awareness to this beautiful culture that is so deeply embedded in the history of Chicago.
