#Doughsomething fundraiser

In response to the recent uptick in anti-Asian harassment and discrimination across the country and  the acts of violence that took the lives of eight people, including six Asian women, on March 16, 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia, a group of chefs have been working closely with the Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliation on a national fundraiser campaign, #doughsomething, through the month of May.

Funds will benefit the national affiliation Asian Americans Advancing Justice and increase awareness about anti-Asian hate, and encourage people to #doughsomething to fight racism. The affiliation is made of five independent, leading organizations advocating for the civil and human rights of Asian Americans and other underserved communities to promote a fair and equitable society for all in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington DC. Please #doughsomething as we come together in solidarity for the AAPI community.
