Did you know that May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month?
According to the CDC, approximately 1 in 10 Asian American adults have a disability. This can lead to some complicated experiences.
As activist Megan Liang writes, “As an Asian American woman with a visible disability, I have always felt as if all parts of my identity were for the world to see and judge… I felt like I couldn’t ask for help in fear that I would be seen as even smaller and weaker.”
That’s why Megan and others like her are hoping to shine a light on the intersection of disability and Asian identity.
