Enough is Enough.
For Love & Lemons stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community against all bigotry, racism, hate, and violence. Let's work together to stay informed, get involved, and advocate for racial justice.
Since COVID-19, Anti-Asian hate crimes have increased by 1900% in the United States. Nearly 3000 reports of anti-Asian hate incidents were reported in over 47 states and the District of Columbia. 7.3% of the reports counted the most vulnerable, elderly Asians, as the victims. Many crimes go unreported or are not classified as hate crimes.
With your help, we have raised over $6,000 for Stop AAPI Hate – a nationwide organization 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.
Here's how the FL&L Community can help:
* Amplify & share these stories. Do not stay silent.
* Call your legislators and ask what they are doing to address this issue
* Check in on your AAPI friends and family
* Support your local AAPI small businesses
* Help escort or run errands for senior citizens in your area
* Diversify and educate yourself with AAPI accounts

We have been trying to wrap our heads around how to best respond, as we wanted it to be meaningful. We acknowledge the privilege and power we have with the platform of this brand and know that it is only right that we use it to bring awareness and share educational information and resources in ways that help people take action. It is our human duty to stand for what is right. It is our human duty to speak out against injustices, to have compassion, to listen and learn, to raise our voices, to support the Black community, and to do better. George Floyd didn't have to lose his life. Ahmaud Arbery didn't have to lose his life. Breonna Taylor didn't have to lose her life. What has been done to these humans, and the countless others throughout history is senseless and wrong.
Enough is enough. And it's time for actual change, we must do better so we can teach our future generations to be better. We as a company must own up to our responsibilities to make a change, to stand for what is right. We are committed to do so, to do more, to be better.
In 2020, we raised approximately $90,000 in sales, 100% of which we donated to the following organizations: Black Lives Matter, The Bail Project, ACLU and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
In 2021, we raised over $5,500 for The Loveland Foundation a nationwide organization that makes it possible for Black women and girls to receive therapy support.
