SAG-AFTRA has teamed up with some of Hollywood’s top Asian American celebrities — including Lucy Liu, Ken Jeong, Carrie Ann Inaba and Jeannie Mai — to release a PSA that urges Americans to take a stand against anti-Asian discrimination.

The two-minute video features 16 SAG-AFTRA members addressing recent hate incidents, which have skyrocketed during the pandemic, and calling for unity.

The SAG-AFTRA PSA tagged #WashTheHate, a campaign which has urged high profile Asian Americans and allies, ranging from entertainers to corporate executives, to participate.

The surge in anti-Asian hate has ignited unprecedented civic engagement and activism from the Asian American community.

Historically perceived as a silent and apolitical “model minority”, Asian Americans are now raising their voices like never before — and not just for their own.
