Alongside national campaigns, let's support our local AAPI communities! One of our director Victoria's favorite organizations that does a lot of beautiful work to celebrate the artistry of the APPI community in Boston is Pao Arts Center, "located at 99 Albany Street in downtown Boston. Pao Arts Center sits on a historically significant piece of land, Parcel 24, where hundreds of Chinatown residents were displaced in the 1960s in order to build a highway on ramp. The redevelopment of this land as a place to celebrate and explore Asian culture represents a powerful shift towards community oriented development in the face of rapid change.
