WE DROVE WEBSITE VISITATION AND EARNED MEDIA FOR NYC COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS

As COVID-19 reached New York City, Asian and Pacific Islander (API) New Yorkers were subjected to heightened levels of bias, discrimination, and harassment due to fear and misinformation about the virus. To bring attention to this unique moment, the Commission partnered with Public Artist in Residence Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya on “I Still Believe in Our City,” a public awareness campaign and art series that educated New Yorkers about COVID-19-related discrimination facing API New Yorkers, affirmed that API New Yorkers are a vital part of New York City, and that API communities stand with the Black Lives Matter movement.
