Hate ends with radical empathy. Empathy starts with uplifting our stories and contributions.
Rise spearheaded the initiative to #StopAsianHate in response to the 339% increase of hate crimes against the AAPI community within the last two years.
The AAPI community, with its nuances and different cultures, has helped shape this country through its innumerable contributions, even in the face of racism, stereotypes and violence. Rise aims to honor Asian lives, advocate for responsible representation, and call allies to pledge solidarity with the AAPI community through Stop Asian Hate.
