The horrific attacks in Georgia killed 8 women, 6 of whom were of Asian descent. Being Asian American myself, these murders hit close to home & reminds me of how many in America refuses to recognize our identity as both American and Asian. 

EMRI Studio will be donating 10% of all proceeds to various AAPI organizations for 30-days starting Thursday, April 8th, 2021 and ending May 7th, 2021. Racist and hate attacks against Asian Americans are not new. Instead of a one-time donation, EMRI Studio wants to give back for a longer period of time. While it is not much, it is the most that I can give right now & we hope that together, we will be able to contribute just a bit more to the AAPI communities around the country. 

The proceeds will be split evenly among these organizations. I tried to find organizations that empowers & uplifts Asian Americans as well as support those immediately impacted by the pandemic.

I have researched these organizations and have also reached out to everyone on IG asking about various different organizations. 

AAPI Women Lead

AAPI Women Lead and the #ImReady Movement aims to uplift political and social platforms through the leadership of AAPI women and girls. The #ImReady movement views the cultural context of racial discrimination, #MeToo, war, immigration through the lens of AAPI women and girls.

The Chinese Progressive Association is an organization based in SF (where I was born!) that empowers and supports low-income and the working class Chinese community in San Francisco.

According to their website, they are the only grassroots Chinese massage parlor worker coalition in the US. They provide a women's migrant resource network; they heavily focus on mutual aid and building coalition and community with other AAPI Organizations.
