Asian Hall of Fame expands impact with new season

Asian Hall of Fame expands impact with new season

Awards program increases messages of Asian representation and inter-racial collaboration

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To increase positive messages of Asian contributions in the United States and the world, prestigious awards program Asian Hall of Fame expands their one-night gala to a full-year of season programming today.

Hate crimes against Asians motivated the Asian Hall of Fame to expand its impact to a year of programming. The Asian Hall of Fame Season presents high-impact events that range from a weekly podcast to a virtual concert tour. Content will also integrate disabilities and diversity inclusion, and curate executive female leadership.

The season opens with the 16th-Annual Asian Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on November, 21, 2020. Inductees are James Hong, Congressmember Judy Chu, Masaharu Morimoto, Noel Lee, Cheryl Burke, Masi Oka, and Wally Yonamine.

Induction Ceremony performers are Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Robby Krieger of The Doors and 13-language vocalist Maki Mae.

To empower marginalized communities, the season supports the Arts for All Program that helps trauma, war, and human trafficking survivors heal through art. The season also supports the Early-Career Development Program and develops an endowment for a future center.

"Asians are 60% of the world and by coming together, Asians collectively can make a difference globally," states Maki Hsieh, CEO of Asian Hall of Fame and its parent philanthropy Robert Chinn Foundation.

Asian Hall of Fame recognizes international Asians, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, Native American and Indigenous leaders. Past inductees include Bruce Lee, Connie Chung, Kristi Yamaguchi, Kevin Kwan, and other influencers.

Interviews with current and past inductees, performers, executives and board members of Asian Hall of Fame and its parent philanthropy Robert Chinn Foundation are available upon request.
