ASIAN HATE AWARENESS

aprf amaaah logo7.png

As we know, during the ancient cultures within the Pacific Rim, Martial arts originated as a necessity for self-defense.  Today Martial Arts symbolizes a major part of Asian Pacific Islander heritage and for almost 50 years, it has played a major contribution to what we all now see in mainstream media.  Martial Arts schools throughout the US continue to provide “inclusive spaces where people from all ethnic backgrounds can come together with a shared purpose.”  (budo-inochi)   Currently in the media exists the rhetoric that blames Asians for the spread of Covid 19.  As a Martial Arts Union, our goal is to work together to display unity, strength, courage, and respect towards one another regardless of race, to identify how we as a community can work towards plausible solutions, and form business to business partnerships within our community to generate much-needed awareness through all mainstream media platforms.   For more information on joining efforts to help Stop Asian l Hlate, contact emmy@aprfoundation.com

WE STRIVE TO PRESERVE API HERITAGE TO ENHANCE QUALITY OF LIFE AND INCREASE OVERALL WELL-BEING.
