Megan Thee Stallion is standing with Asian-Americans rallying for justice against hate crimes happening every day in this country.
So shameful. Did y’all see the crimes committed in New York this week? Disgusting.
Anyway, the Houston hottie has teamed up with her sponsor Fashion Nova and journalist May Lee in donating $50,000 to Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta nonprofit.
Asian Americans Advancing Justice is a legal org aimed at defending and protecting civil rights of Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, Native Hawaiians and other immigrants.
“I am heartbroken by the loss of eight individuals taken from their families on March 16 in a senseless, violent attack against Asian Americans,” Megan captioned in a post to Instagram. “To honor the memory of these victims, @FashionNova and I have partnered with the journalist and Asian activist @mayleeshow on a $50,000 donation to @advancing_justice_atl who work tirelessly to protect the civil and human rights of Asian Americans in Georgia and the Southeast. We stand in solidarity with all Asian Americans in saying that enough is enough. #StopAsianHate #StandWithAANHPICommunity
This isn’t Megan’s first dip in philanthropic pool.
Earlier this month, she partnered with Fashion Nova to give $1 million in donations, grants and scholarships to “female-focused organizations, entrepreneurs, students and other inspiring women doing great things” for Women’s History Month.
The Root reports 25 recipients of donation: The Black Trans Femme Artists Collective, HomeGirl Café, Girls Inc. of New York City, Casa De Esperanza, Black Women for Wellness, The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, Until Freedom, Texas Southern University and The Breonna Taylor Foundation.
The Breonna Taylor Foundation received $100,000 donation on the one year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Keep it pushing, Meg.
