Cases of discrimination, especially against Asian Americans and Pacific Islander (AAPI) New Yorkers, have increased during the COVID-19 crisis. In an effort to tackle anti-Asian bias and discrimination, the New York City Commission on Human Rights has launched a pubic art campaign, "I Still Believe in Our City," created by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya, one of the Commission's Public Artists in Residence for 2020-21.
