KEIKO CONN 2016 DIVERSITY CHAMPION

Arizona Asian American Association is proud to announce our Advisor and Vice President, Keiko Conn was awarded as the 2016 Diversity Champions by Community Celebrating Diversity.

Ms. Conn has dedicated her life to promoting diversity appreciation in Arizona. The activist passionately works to ensure that a wide range of cultures and people are provided an opportunity to receive recognition, exposure – and equality – through visual and performance art.

She has had a positive impact on the Valley’s arts and culture climate for more than 25 years. Ms. Conn has actively supported many community groups including Phoenix’s Japanese Friendship Garden, the Phoenix Art Museum’s Asian Council, International Mother Language Day, the Navajo Tribe and the Arizona Asian American Association.

Ms. Conn intentionally uses the arts as her vehicle to teach principles of community building in direct alignment with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s values, bringing diverse groups together to promote civil and human rights in the pursuit of justice for all.
