The game will include AAPI features throughout the night including recognizing AAPI pioneers and community members.
There will also be new dining options such as the "destination dumpling" and "5ive spice" in Brooklyn Market.
"I'm thrilled that the New York Liberty will host an AAPI Heritage Night for this first time this WNBA season to celebrate the community's rich culture and tradition," said Jackie Wilson, chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer at BSE Global. "Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage is deeply-rooted in the fabric of the entire New York community, and we have an amazing night full of programming planned for our fans at Barclays Center."
The first 2,000 fans in attendance will get an exclusive Han Zu poster.
