LOS ANGELES: In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment) and US Bank launched Season 5 of the #IAm Campaign, a series of mini-documentaries showcasing the voices and achievements of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. This is the second year CAPE, a non-profit organization that champions diversity in entertainment and media, joins forces with US Bank to produce their flagship # awareness campaign.
Season 5 highlights the inspiring stories of the following five artists and leaders: Albert Cheng, Co-Head of Television and COO, Amazon Studios, Ally Maki, actor of Toy Story 4, Apolo Anton Ohno, Olympian,
Nisha Ganatra, director of Late Night, and Tzi Ma, actor of The Farewell, Wu Assassins and Mulan.
“The impact of US Bank’s continued investment in changing the face of Hollywood cannot be overstated,” said Michelle K. Sugihara, CAPE’s Executive Director. “Viewed by millions around the world, the #IAM Campaign inspires people to pursue careers in entertainment and to create stories reflective of the diverse world in which we live.”
“Last year’s #IAm campaign explored how culture influences worldview and career path,” said Gunjan Kedia, vice chairman, Wealth Management and Investment Services. “This year’s campaign builds on that idea by recognizing Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have opened doors for others and celebrating what’s possible when we support one another.”
