LAS VEGAS (LVPR) — Today, an event with over 1000+ Asian American and Pacific Islanders turned out in support of stopping Asian Hate in our own community. KIOF 97.9 FM / President and CEO Gregory LaPorta was also in the area and stopped by and was embedded with the protestors. The photo for this story was taken by KIOF 97.9 FM / President and CEO Gregory LaPorta as protestors made their way around the event. The event was very peaceful and organized.

"Stop Asian Hate, United We Stand." started out with the Voice of Protestors and there were many on hand coming in, followed by a Host Speech. Shortly afterwards there was a Prayer by Pastor Dr. Charlotte Morgan and Ande Morgan and an Asian Representative Speech by Randy Gao.

As the Voice of Protestors continued, there was a speech by the First Lady of Nevada, Kathy Sisolak. State of Nevada Governor Steve Sisloak spoke shortly afterwards to the crowd of protestors in support of "Stop Asian Hate, United We Stand.". After the speech by Governor Sisolak, the Voice of Protestors continued and Congresswomen Dina Titus spoke to the crowd of protestors to ensure them of her support here in our Las Vegas, Nevada community.

The event wrapped up with a speech made by Nevada Chinese Association President Ruomei Wang with a Thank You Speech followed by more Voices of Protestors.
