Here’s how you can help the Asian American Community, whether it’s local or global…
To our FP Community,
We at Free People absolutely denounce discrimination of any kind, and we strive to build an environment that is inclusive for all. As we have become more aware of the rise of hateful occurrences towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community, we wanted to take the time to let our community know we stand in unity with you — with those of you within our Free People family who identify as AAPI, with those who are allies, and also with the greater community. In partnership with incredible organizations denouncing hatred and building up the AAPI community, we’re sharing resources for all of you to remain supported in this challenging time:
Stop AAPI Hate is a community platform that tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
A Community Reporting Resource
Access Stop AAPI Hate’s free community platform to report a hate incident right on their website.
Hollaback is a community organization on a mission to end harassment for all (nonbinary, young girls, BIPOC community, etc.), and provides resources for when you see violence in public.
Providing Free Community Training
Hollaback provides free community training and resources including classes in Street Harassment, Bystander Intervention Against AAPI Community, and Conflict De-escalation Training.
