In this issue:
- #AAJA21 Day 2 Program
- Highlights from Yesterday

#AAJA21 is in FULL SWING! Yesterday was filled with emotion and AAJA community pride as we revealed '40 Years of AAJA' during our opening event, our In Memoriam of beloved members David Ibata and Corky Lee -- and with the tearjerker screening of Blue Bayou. We hope yesterday was a chance to get acquainted or catch up with other AAJA-ers and that you’ve loaded up your agenda with more for today.
TODAY’S MUST-SEES: A timely discussion on tackling the rise of AAPI hate; a fireside chat about Justin Chon’s Blue Bayou; #AAJA21 Karaoke.
