tubefilter– The Coalition Of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment (CAPE) — which is the largest and oldest Asian American entertainment organization in the world — is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary with the help of several high-profile digital stars. This is an especially pertinent community, according to the organization, given that 15% of the most-subscribed channels on YouTube are helmed by Asian creators.
The 25th Anniversary Gala, which will take place on Oct. 22 at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, serves to celebrate and support CAPE — which champions diversity in the entertainment industry by educating, connecting, and empowering Asian American and Pacific Islander artists.
Harry Shum Jr. will attend the event, as will ‘Single By 30’ creators Phil Wang and Wes Chan of Wong Fu Productions. Anna Akana, Harry’s co-star in ‘Single by 30’ will also be an attendant.
Also scheduled to appear: Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), Randall Park (FRESH OFF THE BOAT, TRAINWRECK), Constance Wu (FRESH OFF THE BOAT), Hudson Yang (FRESH OFF THE BOAT), Forrest Wheeler (FRESH OFF THE BOAT), Keiko Agena (GILMORE GIRLS), Dominic “D-trix” Sandoval (AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW), and more!

Harry and other celebrities are set to speak out at “I Am An Immigrant: A celebration of our stories” tonight in Los Angeles at 5pm-8pm. If you can’t be there, watch it live here on the stream.
The live event, part of Immigrant Heritage Month, is sponsored by Welcome.us and The California Endowment.
FUSION – This Saturday night (June 18), celebrities, activists and allies will gather in Los Angeles for “I Am An Immigrant: A celebration of our stories,” a live event that will offer a sampling of the types of immigrant narratives that make USA one of the most diverse and vibrant in the world.
The live event, part of Immigrant Heritage Month, is sponsored by Welcome.us and The California Endowment and will be livestreamed on Fusion.net, with backstage bonus video on Fusion’s Facebook page.
It will feature spoken performances by Scandal’s Guillermo Diaz, Actress Cristela Alonzo, Devious Maid’s Dania Ramirez, East Los High’s Carlito Olivero and Danielle Vega, Actresses Melonie Diaz and Bojana Bojana Novakovic, Actor Harry Shum, Jr., Pulitzer Prize Winner Jose Antonio Vargas, and 6-year-old immigration activist Sophie Cruz.
The live show will pay homage to Native American culture and our nation’s immigrant heritage, as well as to the millions of undocumented people who are now taking their shot at the American Dream and helping to weave the new national fabric.
There’s also a political component to the event, which will be set against the backdrop of the sustained drumroll leading up to the Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision on the legality of the Obama administration’s executive actions on deportation relief for millions of undocumented immigrants and their children—a bundle of legal protections known as DAPA and expanded-DACA.
The Supreme Court’s ruling, which will affect upwards of 500,000 people in Los Angeles alone—including many of those in attendance at Saturday evening’s event—is expected to be handed down sometime in the next two weeks, possibly as early as Monday.
The timing and location of the I Am An Immigrant event is not a coincidence.
“We’ve chosen to host this in Los Angeles, which is essentially the epicenter for the Supreme Court decision on DAPA and expanded DACA,” says Alida Garcia, director of policy at immigrant rights group FWD.us. “It will be a space to celebrate diversity at a time when we’re hearing a lot of anti-immigrant messages.”
Saturday’s event, which will be held at L.A.’s Holman United Methodist Church from 5-8 p.m., is open and free to the public. If you’re not in the area, swing by Fusion.net and watch it live here. More info here and check out the poster below:
