The Museum of Public Relations hosted its 2nd Annual “Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month” observance on Wednesday, May 12. Please join us for this on-demand event, which focuses on the heartbreaking rise of anti-Asian hate and violence in the U.S., including the recent shootings in Atlanta where eight people were killed—six of them Asian women. Our discussion focuses on the role of communicators in helping to #StopAAPIHate.
