BTS is the arguably the biggest boyband to ever grace the Earth. The South Korean boy band BTS has taken the West by a storm in last few years. The K-pop group is set to meet President Joe Biden at the White House to discuss anti-Asian hate crimes and commemorate AANHPI Heritage Month.
The visit of the South Korean pop sensations will take place on Tuesday, according to the White House. President Biden and BTS will also talk about the significance of diversity and inclusion. BTS’ position as global youth ambassadors will be crucial in spreading a message of hope and happiness.
President Biden has previously spoken about his commitment to combating the surge of anti-Asian hate crimes and signed into law the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act in May 2021 to provide law enforcement with resources to identify, investigate, and report hate crimes and ensure that hate crimes information is more accessible to AA and NHPI communities. President Biden and BTS will also discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion and BTS’ platform as youth ambassadors who spread a message of hope and positivity across the world.
BTS collaborated with UNICEF to develop the anti-violence campaign Love Myself. They’ve also performed at the General Assembly of the United Nations. The White House has enlisted the help of celebrities to raise awareness about various social issues.
Selena Gomez joined First Lady Jill Biden at an event last week to raise mental health awareness. Paris Hilton paid a visit to the White House earlier this month to discuss her support for the protection of adolescents in residential programs with administration officials. It’s good to see people using their fame to spread positivity and mental awareness.
