Racism against the AAPI community is something that affects our company very personally and deeply. Our vision would not be possible without the teamwork of our artisans in Thailand. They are the hands behind the products you love! At Lotus and Luna, we condemn hate, racism, and xenophobia.We stand in solidarity with the AAPI community and show our support to those affected both domestically and globally.
Hate crimes committed against the AAPI community in the U.S. have been on the rise since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, anti-Asian racism is not a “NEW” phenomenon. Hatred & violence against the AAPI community cannot and should not be tolerated.
There are many ways you can get involved and help. Offer support, donate, and make sure that these instances of discrimination and hate-crimes are not overlooked and brushed aside! Be an active bystander and do not remain silent in the face of injustice-- report hate crimes, donate, & support.
