a holiday spot from Disney about Filipino grandma and granddaughter
A holiday spot from Disney tells a uniquely Filipino story about a granddaughter and her grandmother.

I’ve wrestled with the violence, the hate and the pain, with the horrific shootings in Atlanta in March hitting particularly close to home as they were a mile from where I used to live. Some days, it’s hard to see if we’ll ever be truly seen as part of this country. Just take Daniel Dae Kim’s testimony in front of Congress where he shared a story about a pollster claiming AAPI voters weren’t counted “because Asian Americans are considered statistically insignificant.” For too long, we’ve been relegated to existing as an invisible minority, which in short, as Kim put it bluntly, means “we don’t matter.”
