I didn't do too much during Asian Heritage month, but it's because I'm still taking in and learning as much as I can. I also believe it's only the beginning.
It shouldn't take us just one special day or designated month to bring awareness and action. It should be happening every single day. So, here's where I'm at with stopping asian hate.
First I need to tell you a little bit about my life. I grew up to stay quiet. I grew up to stick to the status quo to not make trouble. I grew up not thinking anything of it when I watched my favourite show or movie with the Asians always being shown as the villian. Now is the time to change. Now is the time to take action and get more involved.
Here are some resources to learn more about it all and how you can educate yourself and others on what you can do to help:
I'm sure there is lots of other resources out there. So, take note and I'll be updating this post from time to time as I find more information.
I'm starting small and will be creating items to contribute the proceeds to organizations to help stop Asian racism. My first one will be the Kindness Over Hate sticker.
