This discussion was recorded back in January 2021, so we do not address the recent murders of 6 women of Asian descent, 2 people of European descent, and injuring 1 man of Latino descent.

Elcias R. Hernandez-Ortiz, 30, who was seriously injured

In light of these murders and the recent increase in violence towards people of Asian descent, I have created a Mixed & Hella Asian fundraising t-shirt. 100% of the profits will be donated to various organizations that are doing work to stop violence in the AAPI community.

Organizations include but are not limited to... Stop AAPI Hate - Butterfly Asian and Migrant Sex Worker Network - Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta -
