Please join us for an early screening of the documentary Rising Against Asian Hate: One Day in March ahead of National Voter Registration Day/Voter Education Week in early October. Many people from within the AAPI community were motivated to get involved after the Atlanta shootings, but not everyone has recognized its connection to the power of our vote. The film is scheduled for a nationwide broadcast for October 17th on PBS but you can catch an early screening with us!
This screening is hosted by OCA Greater Chicago, the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, the Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community, and the Chinese American Service League.
About the film
Following the aftermath of the March 2021 mass shootings at three spas in Atlanta, this new documentary chronicles how the Asian American community came together to fight back against hate. Offering a conversation about race, class and gender, the film takes a deep dive into this critical moment of racial reckoning, exploring the struggles and triumphs, progress and setbacks, discrimination, and achievements of AAPI communities. The film also depicts the importance of building political power and how it is tied to stopping Asian hate.
The documentary is narrated by Sandra Oh and co-produced by the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM). APIAVote has partnered with CAAM to offer previews to community partners.
