As an Asian/female-owned brand, we are beyond devastated to hear about the recent outbreak of violence and racism against the Asian Community. Nearly 3,800 anti-Asian hate crimes have taken place between March 2020-2021— with 68% being against Asian women.
"It's not cool to be racist.It's cowardly to attack innocent, defenseless women and senior citizens.
Imagine this happening to someone you love? Because these innocent victims WERE someone’s mom, dad, grandmother, grandfather, sister, brother, son, daughter, wife, husband: a loved one.
#StandWithAsians to #StopAsianHate" -Jennifer Yen
