Victor Malana Maog and Sung Rno said: "We jumped at the opportunity to spotlight and support Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) with the help of some very talented and generous artists. This is only a small sampling of what communities, organizations, and allies can do when the going gets - well - rough. Pull together, roll up our collective sleeves, and try to build a better, safer, more equitable world for all of us. At this critical time, it's important that the Asian American community is not just seen, but heard, on our own terms. We've learned that words do matter; but as much as they can tear down, words can also lift up, change minds and hearts. We are thrilled to be working with The 24 Hours Plays to celebrate Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month and send the AAJC some much deserved love, attention, and resources. Like AAJC's mission, we want to give voice to the strength, resilience and beautiful, even messy, diversity of our community."
