Asia Rising Together will be streaming via 88rising’s official Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and SiriusXM platforms.
The concert is one of several 88rising initiatives for AAPIHM, including special radio programming that was launched this month to celebrate AAPI individuals. Numerous artists affiliated with the collective, including Rich Brian and Jackson Wang, have also shown support for the AAPI community in the wake of the '#StopAsianHate' movement earlier this year.
