In March of this year Stop Asian Hate released research data that revealed nearly 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents were reported over the course of roughly a year during the pandemic. Verbal harassment and shunning were the most common types of discrimination, making up 68.1 percent and 20.5 percent of the reports respectively. The third most common category, physical assault, made up 11.1 percent of the total incidents. More than a third of incidents occurred at businesses, the primary site of discrimination, while a quarter took place in public streets. These are only the incidents that have been reported.
In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (May), and to show our support and solidarity to the AAPI community, we have launched a donation tee through our sister brand Be Momentous. 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the AAJC - Asian American's Advancing Justice. The pre-sale is running from 5/1/21-5/8/21. Shop now to show your support.
Stay safe, stay stylish, stay humble.
Be Momentous. Love Momentously.
