The Lake Union is commemorating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a live broadcast on Sabbath, May 29 at 5 p.m. (EDT).
The program will celebrate the influence and contributions of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and examine some of their various challenges, including anti-Asian hate crimes. A new study says that anti-Asian hate crimes have increased in 16 of the nation's largest cities and counties by 164% this past year.
“It’s a sad and tragic fact that in our nation, marginalization towards the AAPI community which has deep historical roots has continued to spread, especially during this pandemic,” said Nicholas Miller, Lake Union Public Affairs and Religious Liberty director. “Throughout the pages of Scripture, we can see that God calls on His people to love our neighbor as ourselves and it is this vein that we hope viewers will be able to connect with our Asian and Pacific Islander brothers and sisters who have added a great deal to our society but have suffered so much pain, harassment and abuse.”
The program, hosted by Lake Union Media Specialist Felicia Tonga and Michigan Conference Communication Director Andy Im, will feature:
