AAH 201 FB Event NEW.png

premiering 5/1, 9pm est:

 

It's been a tough year for Asians in America. Help stop hate against Asians by celebrating them and getting educated. Kick off AAPI Month and CAPA's 42nd annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Festival with AAPI history-related comedy by your fave comedy team Model Majority. Asian Americans helped build, and are very much a part of, America and Model Majority will "teach" you about some of these historical figures and moments since the U.S. school system failed you. This will be an epic-sized and history-making event full of laughs.

Our show is kicking off the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans (CAPA)'s 42nd Annual APA Heritage Festival.
CAPA is a New York-based advocacy organization dedicated to addressing the community needs of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. CAPA’s main goal is to build partnerships with community, social and non-profit organizations to reach new audiences. Their annual APA Heritage Festival is one of the oldest and largest in the US.
