Kidlit Against Anti-Asian Racism Auction Fundraiser #KAAAR

Posted on Monday, 22 February 2021 in News
We, like many others in this country, are horrified about the intense rise in anti-Asian violence after a year of xenophobic rhetoric and racist attacks. “The NYPD reported that hate crimes motivated by anti-Asian sentiment jumped 1,900% in New York City in 2020.” (Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans Are on the Rise. Many Say More Policing Isn’t the Answer, Time.com)
 
Between February 26th, 2021 and February 28th, 2021, we are running an auction to raise funds for two organizations that work against anti-asian racism and racism of all kind: Stop AAPI Hate & Hate is a Virus.
