Episode 094 - Raymond Chang

Raymond Chang is the co-founder and president of the Asian American Christian Collaborative (AACC). Following the shootings in Atlanta, GA in the spring of 2021 and in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the AACC issued statements regarding racism targeted towards Asian Americans. Each of the statements received thousands of signatures of support and provided language for those outside of the AAPI community who seek to be better friends and allies. In our conversation for the podcast, Raymond talks about those statements and also shares what it looks like to be a part of an intentional multi-ethnic community within the body of Christ. #stopAAPIhate
