Ken Fujimoto is the National Spokesperson for the Unity Against Hate Rally and Executive Director at APAPA a non-partisan non-profit grassroots organization focused on empowering Asian and Pacific Islanders in civic and public affairs.  We talk about the goals for the rallies that were held around the country on May 15, the sponsors and participants, and the current anti-hate legislation.

While some Hispanic voters may be motivated by Spanish language political and advocacy ads, Ken emphasizes that the AAPI community generally sees English as the preferred language for calls to action or persuasion.

Ken also shares his own experience with anti-Asian hate as a third generation Japanese American and motivation for his efforts to raise awareness about anti-Asian hate crimes and drive change.
