Thanks, Mom!

In celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month and Mother’s Day, 18MR has launched the #TYMom (Thank You Mom) project.

The project includes the production of a “Thank You Mom” video to express love and gratitude to moms – as well as to our diverse AAPI heritages and communities. Video participants give special thanks to their moms, including creatives and community leaders like spoken word artist Bao Phi, blogger Phil Yu (Angry Asian Man) and Asian American Justice Center president and former Minnesota State Senator Mee Moua.
