#StopAAPIHate

In light of the violence against Asian Americans, we wanted to strongly state our continued support for the AAPI community. As you know, we have a deep appreciation for stories and music from all cultures. It’s fair to say that this interest we share has even changed our lives, and we’re grateful for the Asian and Asian American people that continue to share their time and their passions with us. The Fangirls are committed to supporting people from all walks of life — Black, AAPI, LGBTQ+, and many more. 

In this excellent article from The Strategist — https://nymag.com/strategist/article/where-to-donate-to-help-asian-communities-2021.html — there are over 60 ways to donate to support AAPI causes. Each Fangirl has made a donation to a cause close to her heart, and we invite you to do the same.
