Welcome to the very first episode of TITT Talks – Growing Up Asian Pacific American! We recorded this episode nearly three months ago, but given the surge of social unrest surrounding the topic of race, we felt it was important to launch the podcast with this as our first episode. While we directly discuss matters of our own #aapi identities, our hearts are with the black community. We collectively must do our part to rise against the injustice in this world. Together, with action and self-education, we can create a world of equality and justice today and for the next generation. #blacklivesmatter
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
As part of TITT Talks' women supporting women initiative, each month TITT Talks will spotlight a member of the community. In this video, you will be introduced to Proud Usacharoenporn. She is a lawyer and business litigation partner. In her spare time, she uses her graphic design skills to raise funds for two wonderful, non-profit organizations: The Little Red Dog and The Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Inc. The Little Red Dog rescues dogs from high-kill shelters across Southern California, rehabs them through behavior training, and finds them forever homes. Proud has fostered several dogs for this rescue and has adopted one! In exchange for a donation to @thelittlereddog, Proud will create for you a personalized portrait of your pet to cherish furever and ever.
Proud has also written and illustrated a children’s book called “Panda-Emic” to benefit The Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Inc.’s fund for COVID relief. The story is intended to give parents a way to explain the pandemic to their young children, to spread solidarity, and to inspire positivity. It details the story of five friends who are forced to stay apart because of the “Panda-Emic,” a pandemic started by the pandas that rocks the animal world. The Center for Disaster Philanthropy supports other worthy non-profits that help healthcare workers and especially vulnerable population, such as Americares, CARE, and Feeding America. If you make a donation to The Center, Proud will send you a copy of her book, “Panda-Emic” for you and your family to enjoy. You can donate/purchase here.
