You've seen the shirt. Now, in this time of rising hate and harassment of Asian Americans, on the ground and from our own national government, we've decided to create something new: A facemask that will both help to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, and stand up to those who want to make us afraid of being who we are.
Like The Shirt, the mask immortalizes Sandra Oh's incredible quote from the 2018 Emmys and aligns with the mission of East West Players — the theater company that has celebrated Asian American creators, performers and our shared and diverse Asian American experience for over half a century.
But the mask is an accessory very much for our current moment.
THERE’S NEVER BEEN A MORE CRITICAL TIME TO CELEBRATE YOUR APA PRIDE WHILE PROVIDING LIFESAVING SUPPORT FOR ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS DEVELOPING AND SUPPORTING ASIAN AMERICAN PERFORMING ARTISTS.
