Very brave of you--first the letter and then following through with this community building. Kudos to you! My hope is that there will be more of an attempt to engage more AAPI artists in the new season.
Congratulations Makoto. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours - I'm part of a group over in the UK The British East Asian Artists (https://www.facebook.com/BEAArtists) who are striving to do exactly the same as you are.
