La Jolla Playhouse has released a new video in support of Rep. Grace Meng's #StopAsianHate National Day of Action and Healing in March.

Artists Arianna Afsar (Singer/Actress - HAMILTON and Netflix's WEDDING SEASON), Eric Keen-Louie (La Jolla Playhouse Producing Director), Jess McLeod (Director - HAMILTON Chicago and Digital WOW commissioned artist), and Lauren Yee (Playwright - CAMBODIAN ROCK BAND) launched a digital video campaign featuring nearly 40 AAPI artists highlighting the recent rise - and long history - of anti-Asian hate in America.

With support from La Jolla Playhouse, the team partnered with editor Justin Choe to create this compilation to spread further awareness.
