Haerfest Spread Awareness with New Apparel Capsule
Tim and Daniel Joo, the two Korean-American founders of Haerfest, are shedding light on a real problem happening right now in America and across the globe with a new collection, and we’re totally here to support!
You see, there has been an increase in violence against the Asian American community. Stop AAPI Hate has received more than 2,800 first hand reports of anti-Asian hate crimes across 47 states in the USA since March 19th, and this disturbing rise has gone widely uncovered by mainstream media.
Fashion designer Philip Lim said, ““These hate crimes are up by 1,900 [percent, in New York City, according to 2020 NYPD data] and are a symptom of a larger issue rooted in systemic racism.”
The attacks have come as the Asian community has been wrongfully scapegoated or blamed for the COVID-19 outbreak.
Members of the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community are behind many of the brands and products covered here at Carryology. They also make up a sizable piece of our readership and Facebook community and staff. So this is something close to our hearts, too. And an awareness initiative we’re totally behind.
To this end, Haerfest have produced a capsule collection with the message “Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes”. You can choose from t-shirts, crewnecks, hoodies and a hat. 100% of proceeds go to Stop AAPI Hate.
Hate and racism are lame.
