Takashi Cheng, Founder of Society 1, said, “This event delivers an important message of collective support from our allies to our fellow Asian Americans. ApolloMed has been doing incredible work promoting health care equity and increasing access to quality care for Asian American communities for over 25 years. Society 1 wants to honor their efforts and showcase their successes through the support of our diverse entertainment network.
At the heart of its mission statement, Society 1 is committed to uplifting and showcasing the accomplishments of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, especially during what are undoubtedly difficult times for these communities. Nicknamed “Changemakers,” Club members seek to enhance the participation of its multicultural allies and AAPI strengths across a wide range of industries, professions, and demographic groups.
“ApolloMed is delighted to be among the first corporate members of Society 1. We appreciate the commitment and alliance to foster inclusion in such a meaningful way. We thank the talented Mr. John Lloyd Young for his support and its incredible performance,” said Dr. Kenneth Sim, Executive Chairman of ApolloMed.
Breaking the norms of “support from within,” Society 1 encourages outsiders and people of all backgrounds to voice their concerns about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders targeted by xenophobic attacks across the country.
Young, a singer and actor best known for his work on the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical Boys jersey, is a longtime supporter of AAPI groups and is a practitioner and student of Chinese Chan Buddhism. He says, “It was an honor to showcase my talents on behalf of Company 1 – their mission is close to my heart.”
Company 1 is widely recognized as an emerging influence and is well positioned to focus more on AAPI causes and talent. The purchasing power of Asian Americans has grown at nearly three times the rate of the United States as a whole over the past decade, soaring 314% from 2000 to 2019, while the purchasing power of he total purchase from the United States increased by 119% over the same period.
