Press Release

Shaleen Sheth, Youth Activist, to receive Unsung Hero Award at the Massachusetts AAPI Commission 15th Annual Unity Dinner

The Massachusetts AAPI Commission will hold its 15th Annual Unity Dinner Saturday May 6, 2023 at 5:30 to 9:30 PM at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite. The event will feature keynote speakers, to be announced at a later time.

One of the highlights of the Unity Dinner is the granting of awards to community leaders and organizations. “The AAPI Commission has created an AAPI Unsung Heroes Award, which will be presented annually to an individual or group who has worked tirelessly to support and uplift all communities but has not received the recognition they deserve.” said AAPI Commission Executive Director, Yasmin Padamsee Forbes. “It is critical for us to recognize people who the community knows is the person who has assisted them in times of need, doing important and impactful work year after year.”

Unsung Hero Awards will be given to Connie Wong, Deputy Commissioner for Labor Relations; Boston Fire Department, Shaleen Sheth, Youth Activist; Master Nam and Sarah, Business people; Shaina Lu, Artist; Rev Dr. Ko Ko Lay, a pastor of Burmese Christian Church; and Maria Isabela Campos, Youth Activist.
