The Masked Singer Judge Raises Awareness About AAPI Discrimination
See Us Unite for Change is part of the broader advocacy campaign, See Us Unite. The campaign seeks to amplify voices and encourage education about the Asian American experience.
The purpose of the telecast is to educate viewers about the AAPI community’s impact and inspire them to support efforts against discrimination.
