May is "Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month." However, it’s not the only time to celebrate Asian cultural diversity. It’s a time to speak out, share stories and debunk myths about Asian communities.

NewsChannel 13 has a week-long series dedicated to the AAPI community. We’ve been reporting on a significant surge of violence against Asian-Americans amid the pandemic.

Every day next week, we will be taking a deeper look into the significant surge, and the efforts to make a difference.

It is called "Culture in the Crosshairs: Countering a Surge of Hate." Join us beginning at 5 a.m. Monday morning, and throughout our evening newscasts. We will bring you a one-hour special on Saturday, May 14 at 7 p.m. on NewsChannel 13 and Sunday at 7 p.m. on My4.
