KENTUCKY — The month of May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and it comes at a time that crimes against Asian Americans are making headlines across the country.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice is an organization founded on the goal to help advance civil and human rights for Asian Americans and help foster a fair society for everyone.

John Yang is the President and Executive Director of the National Chapter of the Asian Americans Advancing Justice and joins In Focus Kentucky to share this his "community is tired and fatigued because of all of the pain and tragedy in this past year, but we should also celebrate our strength, unity, and solidarity with all communities."
