#EnoughIsEnough is a grassroots initiative by Asian American business owners in New York City who came together to take action on the recent surge in nationwide hate crimes against the Asian American community. Frustrated by the lack of media coverage on the recent violence, we are rallying all the industry homies to encourage people both in and out of the Asian community to realize the power of their voice.
Our mission is to:
Promote unity and cross cultural community building -- we’re all in this together!
Empowering people in all communities to speak up for good cause.
Spread warmth and joy in the spirit of Lunar New Year
All while raising awareness about the recent surge in hate crimes against Asian elders and Asian Americans
We’re doing this by:
Donating free meals to those in need, including Asian elders, underserved Black & Latino homeless shelters and those struggling with food insecurity during the pandemic
Creating virtual cooking classes and virtual community tours
Hosting critical conversations on Instagram to raise awareness and educate
As an Asian American-led initiative, we center and prioritize underserved communities of color across NYC. We will not turn away anyone in need of food. In times of crisis, unity and love should never get lost.
How you can contribute:
Donate to our Givebutter campaign. 100% of proceeds will go towards the cost of ingredients and transportation to deliver meals to the community.
Share this initiative with your networks via email, text and social media
Talk about the recent hate crimes against the Asian American community online and offline. Tag media platforms, writers and reporters. We need to keep the dialogue going in order to increase awareness and action.
All donors will receive a link to participate in our chef-led Kitchen Rodeo virtual cooking class:
"Lunar Banquet for Uncle Vicha" - Zoom information can be found in your Givebutter donation receipt.
