Stand Against Asian Hate With Joy Rockus Club

Although it may not be trending in the media as much as it shoud, Asian Hate Crimes are still a major issue within the USA. Now, Joy Ruckus is doing its part to take a stand and provide a platform for all the Asian artists who want to share their voices and stop the hate through music.

Sessions takes great pride in continuing their partnership with Joy Ruckus Club, the largest Asian music festival in the world, and virtual events promoter 400 Dayze to present ‘I Hate Being Hated,’ an important fundraiser to benefit Stand with Asian Americans and to raise hate crime awareness on Sunday, June 13, 2021 at 1PM PST via The event is free to stream, but audiences are encouraged to make donations of $35, $50, or $100 through the festival’s merch store on Sessions. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Stand with Asian Americans, a  powerful network of the most accomplished Asian Americans in business and technology with Asian Pacific Fund as their philanthropic partner.

Stand with Asian Americans is committed to stopping violence against the Asian community and inspiring a generation of Asian American activists to create a movement towards equity and justice for all. Their partner, the Asian Pacific Fund has been dedicated to supporting the Bay Area’s most vulnerable Asian and Pacific Islanders for nearly 30 years. Amongst those who have aligned themselves with the Stand With Asian Americans campaign are Steve Chen, Co-Founder of YouTube; Tony Xu, CEO of DoorDash; Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo; Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet; Bobby Hundreds, Co-Founder of The Hundreds; Kai Huang, creator of Guitar Hero; George W. Bush, former President of the United States; Eric Yuan, CEO of Zoom; Jeremy Lin, professional basketball player; and many more.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, there has been a steady increase in violence against Asian Americans who are incorrectly being blamed for the outbreak of the virus. Just last week, President Biden signed the Anti-Asian Hate Crime Bill with particular emphasis on the increase in violence against Asian Americans. Now, these artists will come together to demonstrate their power against Asian Hate. Check out the performers list down below!
