the project

When I was 6 years old walking from Charles Mack elementary school I was always scared. At least once a week, kids would yell at me, 'Hey Chink, go back to where you came from!' When I approached our house on Cedarwood Way, our mail had been ripped up (again) and tossed onto the ground. One time watermelon rinds were thrown at our garage door and another time it was tagged with spray paint.  (It was not the first nor last time they would vandalize our house) A gang of kids across the street who had finished eating the melon glared at me and my sister and then they walked over and proceeded to play football on our lawn. We were too young and helpless to confront their hateful violations. Later we watched out parents pick up our torn mail and silently clean up the mess our neighbors had made. - Angie Eng

Our political voices may be quieter on the streets or in the media but hate crimes against Asians persist. Join us in transforming hate and ignorance into compassion and understanding. Right On! is a social justice art event. Activists stand as human billboards. They will wear t-shirts with dates from Supreme court cases of the last 150 years targeting Asians living in America. Drummers from different AAPI traditional cultures set the tone for each of the four groups participating in the procession. As the moving billboard goes down Capital Mall, history flows and shows how racism written into our system can also be written out.

why we're doing it

We believe that through creative strategies and education we can transform ignorance and hate into compassion. By tracing systemic racism in a creative silent walk, we hope to fill the gaps in education that our history books have omitted to leave millions in the dark.' Right On!' has us revisit the struggle of civil rights for Asians in America to inspire more followers on the path of equity and justice for all. #righton_civilrights
