The city of St. Louis has officially named Jan. 19 as “Very Asian Day,” honoring the Very Asian Foundation founded last year by journalist Michelle Li. Li, an anchor for local TV news station KSDK, launched the Very Asian Foundation on Jan. 19, 2022, after making an appearance on “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” Li created the foundation to spotlight Asian American and Pacific Islander experiences after she was criticized by a viewer for mentioning dumpling soup she ate on New Year's Day.
