With a heavy heart, Asian Media Access and Pan Asian Arts Alliance joined the Mall of America at Jan. 22, 2023 to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Although the tragic shooting in Monterey Park, California has sadden the celebration, but local Asian American communities have come out to showcase our diversity and UNITY that we are all together, while facing the threats of the gun violence.
Our talented and high energy performers excited the whole Mall, audience at all levels/directions cheering for them, and we see clearly that violence cannot and would not crush our spirits. There is a deep reservoir of communal solidarity that we are all in this together, and will continue to create a better world for all!
