Racism is a problem in this country. There's no way around it, we must face it head on! Gone are the days of standing quietly on the sidelines when people are losing their lives behind senseless attacks of hate and ignorance! We as a people have a humanitarian duty to band together for what is right!
VYBBES stands in solidarity with our Asian and Pacific Islander brothers and sisters in the fight against racism wherever it may appear! We are actively brainstorming ways that we can go beyond just posting the trending hashtags and help create actionable change and support for this humanitarian cause.
One way that we all can help immediately, is through our donations to the families and loved ones of those that have lost their lives - this year alone - in various attacks across the country. Here is a good place to start: DONATE On this list you will find several organizations and associations that have all been vetted and are providing everything from victim memorial assistance to policy reform. VYBBES just made a donation and we encourage everyone that can to do the same.
It's never too late to champion a good cause or to stand in support of one. We can't control the hate that is in the hearts of some people but we can control our response to the hate by outpouring love and support for the survivors and challenging ourselves to not just talk about the issues but to take action toward being a part of the solutions.
