#StopAsianHate

33
Organizations In conjunction with our PR agency, Michele Marie PR, we’ve collected 33 organizations working to fight Asian American discrimination and to provide aid to those who have been marginalized or attacked. As Asian Americans and minorities, we grew up with our fair share of racism. With the incidents of hate crimes rising and the violence inflicted on Asian Americans who could have very easily have been our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and children, our hearts ache for everyone suffering. Whether it’s by contributing to an organization or simply by showing compassion, we hope you’ll take a moment to reflect and love. Change. Love. Hope

Asian American Collective (AAC) is the brainchild of music industry veteran co-founders Grace Lee, Caroline Yim and Zeena Koda.
