In response to a negative, racist message on New Years Day towards NBC St. Louis anchor and journalist, Michelle Li, this set of art was designed to spread awareness, promote racial justice and equality, and show support for Asian American and Pacific Islander communities who are experiencing hate crimes in the world. Hand-illustrated food containers and drink bottles that are commonly known by AAPI cultures were drawn with information and typography to represent #VeryAsian people, the movement, and new foundation started by Michelle and Gia Vang. 100% of proceeds collected within 5 days totaling $1,000 were given to the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA).
