In recognition of AAPI Heritage month, TuneCore celebrates its vital community of Asian American creators. In their honor, the company has made a donation to Womankind, an organization that provides multilingual and culturally-responsive services to help Asian women who have survived domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual violence rise above trauma and build a path to healing
TuneCore continues to stand with Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and condemns the wave of hate and crimes directed to this community. Over the past year, Asian people have been targets of nearly 6,600 reported hate incidents in the US, with an increase of 169% in the first quarter of 2021 alone. This is a sickening and dangerous trend in anti-Asian violence, harassment and bigotry around the country. Such violence is a particularly despicable aspect of the deep, tangled roots of bigotry and xenophobia in our society.
We may not be able to make sense out of violence, but we should all make the commitment to support one another during what continues to be a challenging time. Together we can and will do better.
