On May 11, in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, all profits from RiotBrand.org will be donated to KAN-WIN, an Asian-led non-profit organization that focuses on gender-based violence within Asian American communities.
Founded in 1990, KAN-WIN has grown to become one of the premier agencies in the U.S. with the expertise in serving Asian American & immigrant survivors of gender-based violence. Through a set of intensive wrap-around services, including a multilingual 24-hour hotline, legal advocacy, transitional housing program, etc., we help address complex and unique barriers that many immigrant survivors face as they seek to escape from abuse. All of our services are free and confidential, and we strive to provide them in the survivor’s own language.
AAPI Heritage Month shines a spotlight on the triumphs, and tribulations, of Asian Americans and immigrants within the United States. With the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes and rhetoric over the course of the last year, it’s paramount we listen to and uplift their voices.
100% of the profits from any Riot Fest merch item bought today will benefit KAN-WIN—you can do so over at RiotBrand.org. Past that, we encourage you to put your support behind other organizations benefiting Asian American communities, such as Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Stop AAPI Hate, and GoFundMe’s AAPI Community Fund.
