Together We Are Stronger
This #StopAAPIHate comic strip was created by MariNaomi, commissioned by Task Force for LA vs. Hate, and funded by LA Care Health Plan, to address violence against the AAPI community and bring awareness to “Dial 2-1-1.” This piece was installed as murals in multiple SoCal cities, as well as a poster campaign.
The murals can be found in Arcada, Rosemead, and Cerritos.
More than 500 posters were wheat pasted all over Los Angeles County.
