Women walk along Jackson Street in Chinatown past an “AAPI Community Heroes” mural in San Francisco on May 23, 2022. Chinatowns and other Asian American enclaves across the U.S. are using art and culture to show they are safe, vibrant hubs nearly three years after the start of the pandemic. A rise in anti-Asian hate crimes has re-energized these communities and drawn allies and younger generations of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.

President Biden and Vice President Harris will speak at Monday’s signing ceremony for H.R. 3525, which authorizes a commission to study a possible National Museum of Asian Pacific American History and Culture.

The event is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. ET.
