The impact of stateside movements for equality and justice has reached all corners of the world. For Awich's digital FORT contribution, the Japanese artist sends a dispatch from overseas with some words of wisdom. "There has been all kids of information coming and going... and people are being swayed left and right by these conversations on what is fake and what's true, but we decided to stay focused on the foundation. And the foundation is we want to show up in appreciation for Black people, and to help. When you see someone needing help, you help. That's what I was taught where I'm from." Watch her entire speech above.
