The Museum of Public Relations will host its 2nd Annual “Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month” observance on Wednesday, May 12 from 6-7:30 p.m. (ET). Please join us for this event, which will focus 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 will focus on the role of communicators in helping to #StopAAPIHate.
