Our goal is to provide space for the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community to shine in their creativity.
In 2020, the AAPI community began to speak out about the abuse they experience due to racially charged rhetoric surrounding COVID-19. But the issue didn’t receive widespread attention until the Atlanta Spa shootings got nationwide media coverage in March. Eight people were killed in the mass shooting, six of whom were of Asian descent.
At entertwine, a key component of our mission is to amplify the voices of the silent. That’s why we’ll be making space for AAPI voices with our first writing competition of the year.
If you’re not a member of this community, but still want to support you can donate to the AAPI communities fighting against hate. #stopasianhate #stopaapihate #hateisavirus
