Our AAPI Heritage Heroes special celebrates unsung AAPI organizers, activists, and community leaders in a dynamic program spotlighting their remarkable stories.
AAPI Heritage Heroes was a special created by the hands of our community, for our community, by The Asian American Foundation. TAAF AAPI Heritage Heroes is a creative, inspiring program that centers six heroes from our diverse community and shares the stories of their work, their world and their wish for the future of our people.
In six short films, each directed by inspiring AAPI auteurs, we’ll dive into the world of the honoree, exploring not only their contributions, but the AAPI culture that made them. Woven together by celebrity presenters, comedy musical performances, the TAAF AAPI Heritage Heroes special will be a celebration of the ‘everyday extraordinary’ heroes in our lives. Heritage Heroes are people who illuminate the world. They power our communities and light the way forward. These are the people who face the darkness and just say, no.
