The popular South Korean music group BTS is all set to meet US President Joe Biden on May 31. The White House announced that the Grammy-nominated group will join Biden to discuss Asian inclusion and representation, and to address anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination.

In Thursday’s announcement, the White House noted, ‘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,’ the White House added.
