Ladies First is a community, majority women of color, founded by 2 first-gen Asian American sisters.
We want to take a moment to acknowledge the second human crisis we are living through right now - one that is not caused by a silent, unthinking virus but one that is caused by us. By people. By generations of systemic racism and white supremacy that now regularly manifests itself in violence, in poverty, and in the oppression of Black people. This is a crisis of our own making, not nature’s, and it will take all of us to repair it, to demand that it is repaired.
We have teamed up with an organization we can stand behind to help amplify voices and initiate change.
Asians 4 Black Lives was started in support of the Black Community, in the fight against systemic racism, historical injustice, and police brutality. We aim to connect social justice organizations to additional resources, and promote long-term allyship within our Asian Communities.
