We stand against racism.
The Michael Merritt Awards Committee stands united against racism. Hate crimes against AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) communities have risen dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic.
How to help:
1. Listen: Make yourself available to your friends. Let them know you are thinking about them.
2. Learn: End the model minority myth by educating yourself on the wide variety of AAPI experiences. https://zenerations.org/2021/02/25/why-is-racism-towards-asians-so-normal/
3. Speak up: If you see something, say something: stopaapihate.org
4. Support your local AAPI owned small businesses.
5. Amplify AAPI artists, authors, activists by sharing their stories and work.
