2017 OCA Hate Crimes Prevention Art Exhibit Opening

The 2017 Hate Crime Prevention Exhibit, an annual art exhibition hosted by the Organization of Chinese Americans-New York Chapter (OCA-NY), is currently on display at the Museum of Chinese in America. The project seeks to engage NYC youth in hate crime prevention through art as a tool for activism. With the theme “Everyone’s Blood is Red, Let’s Prevent the Bleeding” this year, the exhibition features work from 53 teenage youth from different community. We talked to the president of OCA-NY and the supervisor of the art project before the opening reception.
