Dear Friends:

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Sadly, the Asian community has suffered doubly during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to facing deaths and illness, they were targeted with hate crimes. There were more than 6,600 reports of anti-Asian hate throughout the pandemic. As the representative of one of the largest AAPI communities in the country, I was proud to vote for the COVID19 Hate Crimes Act that President Biden signed into law yesterday to #StopAsianHate. It sent a strong message that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate.

As we are celebrating the last days of AAPI month, I wanted to share a video that I promise will lift you up! NASA produced a wonderfully inspiring video featuring their Asian American astronauts. They share their stories and their love for purpose-driven service.

Please join in their embrace of diversity and being the best we can be - together.

Have a great weekend!

All the best,
