Portrait of Asian Elderly Woman with Children

It hurts me the most to see our elderly friends and family members hurt, injured, or even killed. I just want to protect my family and everyone else who could be affected by these detrimental and malicious actions toward Asians (whether young or old, male or female, and all Asian ethnicities and Pacific Islanders). Stop the Asian Hate.

How to Amplify Your Support for AAPI Content Creators

Debbie Savage, founder of To Thine Own Style Be True

A blog where women can learn to look and feel their best through relatable and inspiring content on style and beauty. 

“As a woman of Cambodian descent whose family immigrated to America for peace and protection, the recent events break my heart and highlight the importance of community support. Growing up as a first-generation immigrant in America made me realize that representation matters, whether in the media or the beauty industry—we should be celebrating and recognizing our differences. Little girls should be able to grow up seeing Asian-American women that look like them on social media and in magazines.

In light of recent violent events and in an effort to support creators part of the AAPI community not just in the next few days but over the long term, consider doing small gestures such as using their affiliate links when shopping, engaging with their sponsored posts on social media, acknowledging Asian beauty trends and practices when replicating them (gua sha, K-beauty) and holding brands accountable to do the same, and sharing their profiles and blogs with your friends. These steps, which may seem insignificant at first glance, can truly help create lasting change by giving AAPI creators a voice and ensuring a more accurate representation of America, which is made stronger by our diversity. It is time to change the narrative.”
