Stop Asian Hate billboard...

Stop Asian Hate billboard
Stop Asian Hate. Billboards like this shouldn't have to exist nowadays, but sadly they are more necessary than ever at the moment.

The former administration exploited existing xenophobia, stoked hatred and normalised attacks on Asian Americans with virus slurs and anti-China rhetoric. 

We must all act now to stop the horrific and heartbreaking surge in violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders happening in the United States this past year, especially during the pandemic.

This colourful, supportive message of peace and solidarity by graphic artist Soyoung Heo was snapped at the busy intersection of La Cienega and Olympic Boulevards on April 20, 2021.

The Korean Youth Community Center teamed up with Amazon Studios and the Korean Federation of Los Angeles to create billboards like this around L.A. to raise awareness about anti-Asian hate, harassment, violence and crime.
