I started working with displaced people because I believe passionately in human rights. Not out of charity, but out of a deep respect for them and their families, and all they continue to overcome, despite so much persecution, inequality and injustice.

Today, 1% of the world’s population - 82.4 million people - is displaced. That’s nearly twice as many as a decade before.

Some crises, like the war in Afghanistan, have lasted for decades.

Others, like the conflict in Ethiopia, are more recent.

They all have in common the violence and denial of rights that leave innocent families with no choice but to flee.

At which point will we be concerned enough to address the environmental devastation, conflict and human rights abuses that fuel these crises?

I’m always continuing to learn – if you’d like to join me, please visit the UN @refugees account.

“I am often referred to as an ‘Asian designer’ instead of just a fashion designer. Why does my profession have to be profiled by my race?” asks Phillip Lim.

The hugely successful designer has experienced this sort of othering all his life, since long before the recent wave of Asian hate in the US that started to make the news in March and has seen dozens of people of Asian heritage killed, assaulted and harassed.

Together with several other prominent Asian Americans, Lim set up the AAPI Gofundme initiative, a fundraising campaign that supports grassroots Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) organisations across the United States.

“It’s important because it is bringing resources to different grassroots organisations, businesses, and victims affected directly by these hate crimes.” As of July, almost US$7 million has been raised for the fund.

Lim believes we can all do more to stop Asian hate and rectify racial inequalities in society. “Educate yourself and your community,” he says. “Most of the time I think people don’t realise how much hurt some of the comments they say carry. We must all learn how to be more mindful, and speak with understanding and kindness.”

In families that have experienced firsthand the surge in attacks on Asian American elders, the resilience of their loved ones is clear. To those who know the history, that spirit is no surprise. "After the mass killings of Asian Americans in Atlanta and Indianapolis this year, people seem more open to recognizing the reality of anti-Asian racism. But the challenge remains," writes author, journalist and activist @helenziareal. "We can begin by recognizing the resilience of the AAPI elders who have been targeted in unacceptable, random acts of violent hate. In their faces, we see the long journeys of revered grandparents, aunts, uncles, mothers and fathers who have struggled and sacrificed for future generations. By bringing our Asian American universe into focus for all to see, we hope you—our neighbors, co-workers, members of all faiths and beloved communities—will see our elders as we see them, and as you see your own: the ones who made the foundation of our families, our homes and our country with their blood, sweat, tears and love."

We thought you all should know abt what is happening to basketball mega star @jlin7 - Swipe to see his.

#Repost @danieldaekim

Why didn’t Jeremy Lin get an @NBA contract this year? Despite putting up these numbers in the G League, where he voluntarily went to prove himself, he remains unsigned. The numbers may not tell the whole story, but they sure tell some of it. Of the top 11 scorers, he was the only one who didn’t get signed, of the top 4 in assists, also the only one.
Injury risk? Given the G-League’s schedule, hardly any starter plays every game, and he only missed a few.
Now obviously I’m not a pro basketball player, so I don’t know all the ins and outs of the decision making process, but I do know what it feels like to have to prove yourself repeatedly to get an opportunity. Can some of you with experience in the league help me understand why these stats don’t lead to an NBA contract? Otherwise, I say #DraftLin

Wouldn’t be right to recognize Memorial day without celebrating the heroic 442nd Infantry Regiment whom have been erased from American history !

Silent no longer folks✊🏽 #goforbroke

#Repost @goldhouseco

The 442nd Infantry Regiment is the most decorated unit for its size in U.S. military history. Composed almost entirely of second-generation American soldiers of Nisei ancestry who fought in World War II, the unit earned more than 18,000 awards in fewer than two years, including 21 Medals of Honor; 9,486 Purple Hearts; and more than 4,000 Bronze Star Medals.

The unit, of course, fought abroad amidst the mass internment of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry at home, in what have been recoined as American concentration camps.

Today, we honor the memory of those unfairly and unjustifiably interned, the sacrifices of the 442nd Infantry Regiment, and the continued service of the many military soldiers and leaders of Asian & Pacific Islander descent.

We are here. Fighting. Tougher than ever.

New York City; the city of sirens, potholes, bikes and skateboards. The city of cantankerous cab drivers and gas fumes. The city of noise that keeps you awake at night and morning coffee runs. Noisy subways, clout chasing tourists on Canal Street and Hypebeasts in Soho. New York City is the city of two rivers and majestic bridges, of runners in Central Park and children scrambling through playgrounds. New York City is the city where only the toughest trees survive and thrive.

It is often said that New York City is the best city in the world and if you want to live here you really have to believe that.

When I started this account in 2019, I had a dream to build an AAPI Therapist Directory. And while we created simple version, I knew that we could do better, but just didn’t have the resources to pull it off just yet.

In the last several months I’ve been working with a team of Asian American developers to create a new AAPI Therapist Directory. And it is finally done! This team has generously built out this entire website without receiving a single cent up until this point.

So today we are launching a fundraiser with two goals:
1. To provide a $10,000 honorarium to the developers of this directory to compensate for part of their labor in creating this directory. They’ve asked me to cap the honorarium at $10,000 because they would like the rest of the funds to all go towards a scholarship fund for Asian American and Pacific Islander mental health trainees.
2. Every dollar of the fundraiser that exceeds the honorarium will be used to create a scholarship fund to help AAPI graduate students in the mental health related fields pay for tuition and education costs.

When I was a graduate student, I remember working multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. As an Asian American, there were not many financial assistance resources available to me especially in a field with such little Asian American representation.

My hope is that the scholarship fund will alleviate some of the pressures for current AAPI mental health trainees and help them realize that there’s a community of people who are rooting for them as they prepare to serve our community in the future.

Many of you have asked in the past how you can support my work. And now I finally have an answer to that question. please consider supporting me and this campaign by:
1. Sharing this campaign far and wide
2. Consider donating if you have the means
3. Inviting all the Asian American and Pacific Islander therapists that you know to join the directory at www.asiansformentalhealth.com

i can still feel the pulsating beat inspired by underground dancehall clubs and the rude boys that frequented them! A deft balance of polish and rogue.

Can you please take a moment to read through the slides to understand what is happening in Nepal.

My heart is heavy today thinking about my home country, as they are in the midst of a humanitarian crisis. While many parts of the world are seeing their COVID-19 cases decrease, Nepal’s cases are spreading faster than almost anywhere else in the world. Daily cases are rising so rapidly that the medical system is overwhelmed and cannot accommodate the new patients.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The US has pledged to share AstraZeneca on hand and in production, with approximately 60 million doses available in the next two months. The criteria for allocating those vaccines has not yet been determined.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The US has made it clear that Washington has stood with the people and Government of Nepal in the ongoing fight against COVID-19, while maintaining high standards of care to provide safe and effective vaccines for Nepalis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With a population of almost 30 million people, the resources available to Nepalis cannot properly fight the crisis. We are asking for help from the world. Nepal needs support now!

Please read the information in these posts, as well as visiting the resources linked in bio and on stories.

Please call upon your representatives to prioritize Nepal, as the US and Nepal have a strong friendship with great mutual trust and appreciation formed over 70 years.

Spring 2012 was a collection inspired by growing up in Socal Skateboarding culture.

It was really the first time ‘streetwear’ was fully incorporated into a collection mixing athleisure, fashion and ‘street’ and presented to the high fashion world. I loved the setting, it was about 90 degrees in an abandoned car garage in Paris.
I think it surprised the fashion community because it was unapologetically American subculture which always becomes the Global Culture inspiration . periodt⚠️

"The industry needs a real shift within. While companies and brands continue to speak out, it’s really about the actions that are being taken to create a more diverse space...We cannot start seeing real change until we start gaining representation in places where we can make impactful decisions."

When the media started reporting on the rise in anti-Asian violence earlier this year, many in the fashion industry remained silent on the issue — but not @therealphilliplim , who has long been an outspoken advocate for marginalized communities. The fashion designer recently spoke with us about the changes he wants to see in the fashion industry, the task of bringing awareness to anti-Asian hate, the importance of solidarity, and more.

Today is Mother’s Day and you all know that my mom Hannah Lim is my hero, but also, people that look like my mother are being targeted by hate every single day!

So instead of posting an image of my beautiful mother- i think she ( and all mothers) would want me (us) to continue to fight and bring awareness to the ongoing hate that our AAPI communites continues to experience daily and now alarmingly has increased globally.

So i am proud to announce and support the launch of #stopESEAhate in the UK 🇬🇧
to help combat the rise in attacks on ESEA communities- which have tripled.

Thank you @gemma_chan @gofundmegb for taking the lead and bringing so many together to say enough is enough!

Perhaps in honor of all our mothers, pls donate to help stop the hate and support all the grassroots organizations and individual victims get through the injustice.
Gofundme.com/ESEA (link in my bio)

Please help spread the awareness, repost and share the post with your community. The only way to defeat racism and hate is to stand in solidarity.

—————-
This is the official GoFundMe to provide relief for Mr. Yao Pan Ma and his family after a horrific act of violence was committed against him. We are actively working with GoFundMe to direct the funds from previous fundraisers for the family to them. Moving forward, all donations can be made through this fundraiser, as is the family's request.

Yao Pan Ma, 61, was collecting cans alone on Friday on the streets of NYC to support his family. An attacker struck him from behind, knocked him to the ground and struck him repeatedly in the head. Mr. Yao Pan Ma was found unconscious on the curb.

I am starting this GoFundMe on Mr. Yao Pan Ma's behalf with authority from his family. All funds will go directly to his family. While they will decide what to do with the funds raised, we hope it frees them from having to worry about medical bills and financial insecurity at this unimaginable time.

We urge everyone to fight for justice for Mr. Yao Pan Ma and help him and his family so that he never needs to wander the streets of New York to make a living.

Mr. Yao Pan Ma’s wife is currently with him in the hospital, heartbroken and horrified. In her words, “He picks up bottles to help pay the rent and the bills. He is innocent. He did not do anything wrong. He is a very kind person. He is quiet. He doesn’t cause trouble”

‘I want to make sure that Mr. Ma and his family knows that we see them, that they have a woken community standing right next to them at this moment of darkness and this community will show them what justice looks like, what love feels like and what humanity is capable of.’

-Phillip Lim

I dont know what else to say from what @paulysong has said.

Please watch ( it is triggering) I am trying to find out if there is a legit Gofundme set up for him, or how to get in contact to set one up for him. We need to help Mr. Yao Pan Ma and his family. No one should be assaulted for trying to live a decent life. 💔

Update from @nypost - The wife of the Asian man critically injured after being repeatedly kicked in the head by a stranger in East Harlem begged police Saturday to bring her husband’s attacker to justice — and make him “pay.”

Yao Pan Ma, 61, was collecting cans Friday to help the family make ends meet along Third Avenue and East 125th Street when a madman struck him from behind, knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head at least six times — a horrific, caught-on-video attack that comes amid a surge of anti-Asian hate crimes.

A home attendant who takes care of elderly patients, Chen was at work and not expected back home until after the weekend when she got the terrible news from police, who on Saturday released a 12-second clip showing the worst of the savage attack. The couple have two grown children, both married and living in China. Her husband used to work in a restaurant — helping the cook, washing dishes, but lost his job because of the pandemic.

That’s why he was collecting bottles and cans on a Friday night — to do whatever he could to help the family’s finances, his wife said.

“My husband is a hard-working man,” she said. “He picks up bottles to help pay the rent and the bills. He is innocent. He did not do anything wrong. He is a very kind person. He is quiet. He doesn’t cause trouble to make people mad.”

The suspect remains on the loose, and was last seen wearing a black jacket, black pants, white sneakers and a multi-colored baseball cap, police said.

The unprovoked attack came amid an increase in anti-Asian violence and is being probed as a hate crime, police said. (More on NYPost.com)

‘If you are going to be an Asian American artist, be prepared to be unfathomable to the rest of the world and the rest of the country.

When it comes to Asian American innovation and agency, we are often legible when we are of service to larger structures and art...

When you dare to have your own agency, your own dreams; when you no longer become the instrument, the empty vessel of larger pre-made art, you will be called pretentious. You will be called unrestrained. They will not be ready for your mind when it creates it’s own thing. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. You should do it.

But be prepared, expect it and even more so, why not be as ambitious as you want to be? why not be pretentious? what is pretentious but to have the pretense, the assumption that you belong here. Be prepared to be inconceivable and then be prepared to innovate beyond that because we need you and we are ready for you.’

my brother @jerrylorenzo reminded me that when you work in purpose, the fear subsides ✊🏽 Lets do this fam!

lets lean into the discomfort and fight the hate ! #stopasianhate #loveunitycommunity

The continued violence and assualts on our asian elders and women is atrocious.

But lets speak about how dangerous apathy is? Apathy is a co-conspirator to hate, it allows it space and empowers it. I dont know what the answer is but maybe it starts from within us to change the narrative of who is valued in society. We have to figure a way back to valuing all lives no matter how different they are from ours. We need to grow our souls and connect back to one another now or else hate will continue to pummel our communities and further divide our progress. #stopasianhate #loveunitycommunity

Our anger, pain, fears and frustration is understandable and justifiable, PERIODT.

Now, we must turn this rage into actionable lasting change while continuing to hold hate accountable. Stay vigilant my friends, steady your pace, keep your mind clear and awaken from apathy. Remember, no one person can do everything, however Everyone can do something! #loveunitycommunity

THIS IS A HATE CRIME!!!!! NYC today, this is one of the most egregious examples of pathetic cowards all around!

fu @kkkkk !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The disgusting coward violently assualting a 65 yr old Asian American ( Filipina) woman, the pathetic cowards in the building just standing around watching and then closing the doors on her!

Please find these cowards, justice has to be served for this Hate Crime! 🤬

Did you know that Asian women are being targeted at 2x the rate of Asian men? not to mention the hyper-sexualization of Asian women for the male gaze. I say to all men watching this video, take a look in the mirror, do you appreciate what you see? if not, check it! and focus your gaze on improving yourself and how you can be of service - instead of constantly expecting to be served. We all have mothers, sisters or daughters.... So please, next time tell them you see, hear them, stand with them and commit to change from within so it leads to change moving forward. 🙏🏽 #stopasianhate

Join us this Sunday, March 21st for a 5K run, walk, bike through lower Manhattan as we come together to focus on critical community building between Black, Brown and asian peoples. The rally will also feature special guest speakers who are on the front lines helping to raise awareness against anti-Asian and anti-Black racism. All are welcome!

** personal note; as i watched Minari, i thought to myself how can this film be in the ‘foreign film’ ‘category- like so many of us, this is our families story in America. this is an American film - periodt. it just further illustrates how deep the systemic ‘othering’ runs.

She has survived a cultural revolution in China as well as escaped the genocide of Cambodia before arriving to America, her home for the past 45 years.

Mom doesn’t say much about her past, as you can’t imagine how traumatizing it must be to have to survive from Hate your whole life. The other day, over the phone, she asked me,
‘ i have been hearing about people like me being hurt just for walking down the street, is it true? she asked me,
‘ why do they hate us? why do people hate others ? what difference does it make people’s skin color, or what language you speak, if you are poor or rich,...i dont understand son? Don’t hate people Pileep, we are all just trying to have a decent life. 💔

Please help me protect her by standing up against the current rise in xenophobia and violence against Asians and our communities.

Please donate to our AAPI fund
Gofundme.com/aapi
(link in my bio- permanently ).

together we can give agency and platform to the heroes on the ground doing the work to keep all communities safe and healthy.

we will not stop until all generations in the AAPI communities are safe to walk down the street.

#stopasianhate #loveunitycommunity @gofundme

Yesterday, before i went on live @cnn , my friend @brooke_baldwin reminded us that it was 1

year ago that she invited me on her show to discuss the increased attacks on Asians at the start of the Pandemic.

Sadly since then, the attacks have only sky rocketed into daily occurrences of violent, unprovoked, deadly attacks across all generations in the Asian communities.

i dont know what to even say or feel at this moment. i woke up this morning, looking at myself asking - ‘why this country doesn’t understand that we are Americans also!? Asian americans.

Enough is enough, the silence, apathy and hate must end. Its time for us to all lean in and take action to show that hate has no place here. this is going to be a difficult, uncomfortable marathon of a fight, but the time is now to stand together and do this!

thank you @brooke_baldwin for giving me space to speak my truth! and to share with the world the @gofundme / AAPI initative that was made possible because of angels like @musa @bingchen @robecta_ @vnl ( the incredible team at Gofundme) - special shout out to

#stopasianhate

this is 💯! important to say very clearly and uphold firmly as we progress as a race- a human one ☝🏽


please avoid this trap, it is set by a supremacist agenda to divide bipoc communities and conquer.
we cannot step on one community to uphold another because we can hold multiple truths at once.

please, a reminder that the only way we will win the fight against racism is that we fight as allies, become brothers and sisters , stand as friends and neighbors in this fight for our lives against racism and dismantling of the colonial structures.

Several have asked us which organizations are the most credible, measurably impactful, and sustainable to donate to. With our friends at @capeusa , we’ve vetted several community-driven organizations that have been doing the work (and will continue to) in the fight for restorative (rather than retributive or performative) justice. We’re inspired by the abundance of positive momentum in and for the AAPI community but we need to be responsible with our collective resources and deliver them to the right organizations where they’re most impactful. Finally, fighting for socioeconomic equity is a constant work in progress; we’re committed to both weeding out systemic injustices while planting seeds that engender new, greater socioeconomic equity. We’ll continue adding to this playbook and will share even more systemic solutions we’re brewing with our partners soon. Change takes time—but time is all it takes. #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate

#StopAsianHate

i am not trying to minimize anyone’s situation, experience, journey whatsoever.

i understand it is complicated, layered and frightening. i see you and know it is real.

this message is for anyone out here who may need just a slight push/ hand.... we do not have to continue to sit in the burden of generations before. we have to protect them and the future generations to come. we must be the example, the silence must end with us.

come, lets do this together - slowly, steadfast - we start where we are and step into our community that is becoming. ✨

w/ love, gratitude and respect. #StopAsianHate

Thank you @samiranasr the EIC of @harpersbazaarus for giving me space. We cover fashion,

the current status of #StopAsianHate and allyship We speak about food and @morethanourbellies and we have a much needed LOL .. all in 20 mins! I love that the different parts of my life is slowly becoming who i am about as a human being. #gratitude #loveunitycommunity

i vividly remember watching the first clip of the elder chinese man being bullied and the video

being passed around on social media as entertainment for some ( this is not new, but this was now recorded for the world to see the growing hate) , this was the beginning of pandemic ( early March ?).

my friend @brooke_baldwin (❤️) contacted me and invited me to come on @cnn (see the OG interview on my igtv) to bring awareness to the matter and remind everyone that the Asian communities are not responsible for the Covid-19 virus, which is a health and human virus that affects us all no matter what color, gender, age, race, class, etc.

Since then, the rise of violent attacks targeted at Asian communities has increased 1900%. i know this is a complex and layered issue, one that cannot be fixed overnight or by attacking each other), but at its core-
the silence becomes hate’s greatest ally! and to be frank, no longer will we be silent.

Thank you to everyone for your support and coming out in solidarity. we need to continue see each other, hear each other, heal together, make space for one another and be super vigilant not to let the deep rooted colonial, supremacist, oppression continue to divide us. Lets show them that we can hold multiple truths for all communities at the same time! This will be a long, uncomfortable process, but it is necessary in order to move forward together.

we need to share our stories with each others friends, families, networks so that we can together force out the HATE that is threatening us all.

i am more inspired than ever to stand with you in your fight as well, but right now please help us #StopAsianHate

** please keep sharing and keeping it trending because this is the only way, mainstream media and hearts will change.
#loveunitycommunity

Yes, you maybe surprised, but the numbers dont lie, the hurt and violence is real.

The problem is Asian stories are not being covered on mainstream media resulting in the lack of awareness for the sharp increase in these racially (ignorance, mis-information and also unresolved decades of trauma) motivated violent attacks on AAPI communities. This is why we have to stay vigilant and spread the awareness ourselves and continue to be vocal so that they hear us, they see us, they believe us! So i ask for your help to stand in solidarity with Asian communities to let hate know there is no place here for its ugly face. Please take care of yourself and each other.

3) Check in on your Asian friends, peers, colleagues, neighbors and just let them know you see them.

4) Get the the facts that mainstream media is not covering , check out @nextshark @dionlimtv @goldhouse @risenow.us

#HappyValentinesDay This is a test scene I did two years ago with two young talents @jared.chuah & @dorindamaa I cast from @apexforyouth while workshopping my script for @zimothefilm the narrative feature I’m doing with my friend @therealphilliplim and our awesome team @omdrazzi @gail_lyon @elizabethdell_la @limjinli @boocethierry & @thesecretgallery The story has evolved a lot since this test but the universal themes of love and loss remain at the heart of the project. Jared & Dorinda had never acted before but had natural gifts. Jared’s mom @jia_nyc assisted me and DP @kdbnyc to get our takes. This terrific project is partly financed now and I can’t wait for the wane of Covid so we can bring this beautiful story to life! The poem “Mey” recites is:
I wait here with my heart
a pebble from the river
pinched between my fingers
turning it over and over
* * * *

the past weeks attacks on Asian communities has motivated me to learn more about the Chinese American experience.

As painful as the realities have been, it has also reminded me not to take my freedom and privilege for granted. Thank you @limjinli for inspiring me to dig in deeper 🙏🏽 #thechineseinamerica #irischang

p.s- we will be hosting a book giveaway soon!
#stopasianhate #loveunitycommunity

every community has their own unique experiences with racism that is real and needs to be addressed!

comparing one to another and using it to manuever is playing directly into the hands of white supremacy. we must learn, support and stand with all communities in the fight against the virus of racism.

#Repost @janayathefuture

Let’s be really clear about some things. Violence against Asian Americans is real AND we’ve got to learn how to talk about it without using the Black experience as a prop to position that reality.
In this video, we talk about model minorities, invisible vs hyper-visible, and how to name racism without using the Black experience in a non transformative way. This is our fight together. We’ve got to get better at showing up for each other, and we can. I hope this video helps us get there.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

I did not clearly articulate that “model minority” is a myth and not a people. The model minority is a white supremacist construct that does not reflect the Asian experience. Some folks buy into this construct for access to proximity to whiteness. Had a convo with @sandymhudson because something was not sitting right with me about what I said. Shout out to her for grappling with me in this error. Everybody please take note.

with the past two weeks of continual rise in hate crimes and senseless attacks on our elders in Asian communities, i can’t help but think about this beautiful video by @davi_russo


every time i watch it, tears run down my face thinking of the gentle-natured characters you see here in this lightbox, possibly being brutally harassed and attacked and the fear running through our community.
i hope sharing this with you allows you to connect to the beautiful faces and familiar smiles that could be any of our family members.
lets stand up and make sure we are no longer silent to the violence that is happening to our communities.

When @joseiswriting + @hithapalepu each pinged me, hours apart, to ask if I was aware of the recent spate of violent hate crimes against Asian-Americans, if I had seen @amandangocnguyen’s powerful plea to get the media to do a better job of covering the story, and the news of @danieldaekim + @thatdanielwu working together to offer a reward for information on a repeat attacker, I knew we had to blow up our rundown and make room for this important story. Yes, it’s about violence and hate, but it is also about a community that for too long has felt invisible and overlooked. I realize there is much more nuance than can be covered in 8 minutes (as Jose reminded me, this is a community with diversity of country of origin, of language, of immigration status, and the greatest intra-group wealth gap in the country) but I hope it is a starting point for bigger conversations. Thank you Daniel, Daniel, Amanda, Jose and Hitha for your leadership, and @dionlimtv for your reporting. If you want to learn more @nextshark is a great resource.

today to go forward with empathy, solidarity, and clarity to see and combat the true enemy;
racism and supremacy
#coverasianstories #loveunitycommunity

a bare minimum first step,


please help tag, share to all media, government representatives, community leaders, celebrities, influencers and fellow humans to help spread awareness of the ongoing reality of the rise of racially motivated violence towards Asian communities. people have to know! this has to be part of the national, international conversation. periodt

the violence will not end until the SILENCE ends ⚠️
#coverasianstories #loveunitycommunity

Thank you @amandangocnguyen for recapping what the mainstream media should be doing ⚠️


This is all within this week! these sick racist cowards are targeting and violently attacking our elders so they can feel big abt themselves. These horrendous hate crimes against Asian communities continue to be swept underneath the rug and not called out for what they are! 👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽HATE CRIMES!
the violence as well as the SILENCE needs to come to and end- it is killing us 💔

even though there are vaccines in our sight, there will isn’t one to erradicate racism and hate unless we all collectively stand up against this evil. please spread this message and help bring it to light.

reminder, an attack on any community is an attack on all! and from here on out- lets be conscious of who we support $$$/ vote for and demand that they include us ( Asians/ Asian communities as part of the conversations!)

Last Thursday an 84 year old Thai American was MURDERED in San Francisco. He died this week. On Wednesday a 64 year old Vietnamese grandmother was assaulted in San Jose and on the same day a Fillipino American was slashed across the face on a subway in Manhattan. His wounds were so deep he was unable to talk. 

This racism has gotten so bad that The Royal Thai Consulate-General in Los Angeles has warned Thai people in California to be on their guard. 

This may be the first time you are hearing about this violence if you are not following asian american news because the mainstream media does not spotlight our stories. We matter. Racism Kills 

I’m asking everyone who sees this to share and tag @cnn , @msnbc , journalists with massive platforms like @maddowshow , @andersoncooper to cover this man’s story. Our community is being attacked. We are dying to be heard. #justiceforvicha

⚠️TRIGGER WARNING ⚠️ this is the type of senseless evil that will make you feel sick and have you fuming!!!

but it is important to share and remind everyone of the ongoing increase in violent hate-crimes against Asians and our communities during this pandemic. this horrendous and misguided racism cannot be tolerated and justice must be served. thank you @thatdanielwu @danieldaekim for taking a stand. Please everyone repost and help spread awareness ! watch over each other and remind your loved ones to be safe, and vigilant of the ongoing reality.

Despite the skyrocketing number of hate crimes against Asian Americans this past year, our pleas for help go unheard. The crimes somehow excused. Remember Vincent Chin. #enoughisenough
We continue to be dismissed.
Not today.
@danieldaekim and I are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this man and his accomplices.
We must do more to help the literally thousands of Americans who have suffered at the hands of this absolutely senseless violence. We must take a stand and say, “no more.” Please help us bring this criminal to justice.

THANK YOU @joannahowrites and @harperkids for publishing this very important children’s book about celebrating our beautiful Asian-ness from the beginning.

being in the fashion and beauty space, i know first hand what the effects of lack of representation does to the soul when we are adults. besides creating, it seems like i have spent my whole career mending back the confidence of the beautiful but broken girls and boys that i have been honored to collaborate with.

The way we see and feel about ourselves starts when we are children, so if you know an Asian child or any children that would benefit Please gift them this book 📚 #gratitude #bepresent #eyesthatkissinthecorners

a metaphor for what has been the spiciest of years!

#31LiveFree was born in my living room during quarantine.

my friend @ruba would come over once in a while and ask ‘ uhmm what are you doing? and you must share this story!’
thank you Queen Ruba! (swipe to view slides)

the question i was asking myself was ‘what is important right now, what do i wish for? and how can we be of service?’

my answer,
‘ i want to Live Free, i want to move forward with peace of mind. i want to re-think what is essential and reprioritize the functionality of the first layers we put on our sacred bodies.
i want to make it is even more inclusive, responsible, functional without desire being a question.’

a round up of my favorite spaces from early this week.

there was just so much beauty in New Canaan #gratitude #bepresent #pldesires

this inside house by Eliot Noyes blew my mind 🤯 !!!

another gorgoeus example of an original mid-century modernist masterpiece from my tour of New Canaan made possible by @thecreativesagent #bepresent #gratitude #pldesires #eliotnoyes

i was overwhelmed by so much beauty at the Philip Johnson Glass House.

From the glass pavilion to the pool, the art bunker, indoor sculpture green house, the pond, and of course his personal library office. I highly recommend an all day trip to witness for yourself! the property is on 49 acres!!!
Thank you @pjglasshouse for this dream moment and of course @thecreativesagent for a day tour of New Canan’s last mid-century modern masterpieces! ( he took me to so many of them - Breuer, Eliot Noyes, and more PJ homes) which i will post in the days to come)

*** btw, did you know the town of New Canan ( just about 1 hour outside NYC) has the largest density of mid-century modernist homes by the masters of architecture? at one point there was 124 examples, i believe today there are still about 92 of them left? and some for sale! contact @thecreativesagent if you want to experience one of these historic dreams ✨ #bepresent #gratitude #pldesires #31sustainablebalance

mic 🎤 drops...this is legit confirmed by tonites debate.

***no plants were harmed for this inspiring project 🙏🏽🌎🌿 #gratitude #bepresent #31sustainablebalance #romancingreality #31tribe

It is so important that we inspire the generations ahead and we hold the doors open for them.

Our responsibility to instill in them that they can do anything they dream of and that each and everyone of them is unique and special no matter their color, creed or situation. The future depends on all of us to collectively understand and to accept this responsibility and ultimately rise to its purpose✊🏽 #loveunitycommunity #bepresent #gratitude #higherpurpose

and NOW is the time! during this moment as we journey through all the uncertainties, what i know for certain is that nobody (not even your mom) knows what is right for you except yourself!

so go for it, create the life you want! ✊🏽 #bepresent #gratitude #31livefree

happy friday fam! we all made it here! ( group virtual 🤗)


here is one of my favorite personal moments sitting for the inaugural issue of @burdockmedia magazine! As an Asian American POC creative, business owner- representation and showing up for our community matters!

it is true!
‘being political is not about posting and cuttng-and-pasting slogans, it is about existing, thriving as a POC-being, a business, a community! this is the ultimate form of political resistance!’

thank you 🙏🏽 @peterashlee @hannahchloelee and the Burdock Family for this moment.

Burdock was created as a platform dedicated to celebrating multi-dimensional Asian American experiences; a community to see beauty in our shared experiences, and find joy in the fact that we contain multitudes’ - Burdock team

Everyone, please support this magazine, it is so important to ensure platforms that promote diversity and inclusion exist and thrive to continue to tell the beautiful stories of our communities!

THIS!!! my friends is the secret sauce! another birthday means a little more wisdom with age and i am not hating on that!

but that doesnt mean i will let my skin age without a graceful fight! or without the help of @augustinusbader moisturizer. This is my favorite cream, periodt , ever since @joannaczechofficial introduced it to me several years ago , this is the only moisturizer i will use.

***note to all the men reading this post- even you guys need to take care of your skin! because unlike skinny jeans after a certain age, your skin is always going to be in 👌🏽 #gratitude #startwhereyouare #augustinusbader forever 💥

after all these years, through the highs, lows and everything in between, one thing is still very

clear to me- the continual pursuit of freedom, the ability to make decisions and live life with balance, integrity and empathy is a basic rule to live free.

i know this is a privilege and we as a society are not there yet because there is still so much systemic racism, structural inequality and division that we must continue to work on together. however, i continue to have hope 🙏🏽.
#bepresent #gratitude #31LIVEFREE

during the beginning of the pandemic while in quarantine, i started to rethink priorities.

i started to question what is essential, what i want to wear now in the present that will allow me to feel ‘free ‘ again. I can’t wait to share with you the next chapter. #31LIVEFREE #bepresent #gratitude @31philliplim

A flambé Peking duck ( dry aged, smoked and lovingly prepared by the hostess with the mostest

@angiekmar Besides the obviously delicious food, what really got me was the heart ❤️ in which the always inspiring proprietor, Angie and her passionate tribe @beatrice_inn accompanied with our dinning experience. Through out the evening @tokibunbun , @ezrajwilliam and myself were continually surprised and delighted with the the type of service and generosity of spirit that just lit up our evening- From the charming cocktails, the top quality ingredients, the charming mishmash of antique silverware ( hand picked in Portobello Market), to the endless smiles from her crew. I wanted to post this because WE all know how difficult it is to continue to fight for our lives in this time of pandemic. Small businesses can barely keep afloat with all the layers of civic/bureaucratic complications while having the crushing weight of figuring out how to keep our tribe together! but last night, i was graciously reminded of the possibilities when courage, will of passion, love and talent can continue to achieve. Thank you Angie and your beautiful crew at the Beatrice Inn. SO PLEASE everyone, if you are able to , go treat yourself to a delicious meal at the Beatrice Inn, support small local kick-ass businesses and humbly remind ourselves of the dignity we all still deserve and possess 🖤🙏🏽🇺🇸 #gratitude #bepresent #loveunitycommunity #supportsmallbusiness #beatriceinn

It’s been 150 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered in her sleep by Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove.

Her killers have not been charged. Too often, Black women who die from police violence are forgotten. Let’s stay loud, keep demanding justice for Breonna and her family, and SAY HER NAME. This campaign and t-shirt were created by @phenomenal in partnership with the Breonna Taylor Foundation, to which all profits will be donated. (Art by @arlyn.garcia ) #justiceforbreonnataylor

born out of the present moment, i wanted to create that everyday grab and go-to bag, a trip to the market, a bike ride , to catch a train, or for an overnight adventure - this is the bag for you.

highly functional but without the excess fraught, constructed from a durable, yet chic technical cordura balanced with a hint of nostalgia. also, because i am always thinking of you, not only will the price be fantastic, we will also be using a new anti-bacterial technology for that extra peace of mind.

my question to you is, would you f$ck with this?

Dang life moves so fast. We had to do an official poster for our lil film #RomancingReality per the latest festival we were accepted into. Seems like years ago but actually just months! Here’s my directors statement: “By showing three totally different men all wearing @31philliplim we see how the clothes can accommodate a variety of lifestyles and demeanors. This simple poetic approach effectively expresses a very rich idea - through fashion and style, any man can integrate a little romance into the reality of their day.

It is delightful to have this peek inside how men get ready for the world. Seeing their personal quirks and vanities in front of the morning mirror, watching them making their wardrobe choices with the help of their toddler or new puppy or sleepy girlfriend!

Existential themes are at play in this short film too - reflective of @therealphilliplim ‘s personal philosophy.
Our three men represent very different circumstances yet share an evolved sense of awareness and engagement with the moment. They are modern men making the most of their morning, whether rain or shine Through minimal dialogue and painterly symbolism, our film embraces the nuances that make us different while highlighting the #interconnectivity of life we all share.”

part 2 - a series of windows into a new sunrise by @shoshibuya for @31philliplim -donation was made to @blackvisionscollective on behalf of Sho for his beautiful work.

#gratitude #loveunitycommunity #bepresent #31tribe

a lot is happening right now, the hope, exhaustion, excitement, pain, courage, fear, the unfamiliar, the anger, the new beginning and the inevitable end.

we are all individually experiencing different levels of all of it. Everything that you are feeling is because you part of the process of change. while it is important to #bepresent and be part of this movement, it is also important to give yourself permission to take a minute to breathe. don’t give up and #startwhereyouare #gratitude #loveunitycommunity #31tribe

A new sunrise ..

hopeful to a better world, by @shoshibuya Not only did Sho bring back life to 48 great jones, but he also requested that we donate to @blackvisionscollective in exchange for his work 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽✔️ #gratitude #bepresent #loveunitycommunity
also shout out to @ruba for the connect 🙏🏽

an excerpt from ‘The Color of Fear’ by #leemunwah - this documentary was brought to my attention

by my friend @studiodaminato , and it has enlightened so many critical nuances about the conversation of race, racism, privilege, trauma, culture and healing in America. i highly suggest you guys look into this documentary and also the director ( his tedtalk will bring you to tears) i have been searching for the entire documentary, but only have been able to find extremely powerful clips on @youtube. #thecoloroffear #leemunwah #gratitude #loveunitycommunity #blacklivesmatter #31tribe

what a beautiful color ✊🏽

The video of the killing Ahmaud Arbery is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen in my life. The fact that the men who killed him are not in jail is a an abomination. We need to demand that justice is served! #justiceforahmaud www.runwithmaud.com

i asked my insanely talented friend to create a unique movement piece to one of my favorite songs.
