Singer CL OF 2NE1 participated in a donation against Asian hate crimes, which are becoming more serious in the United States.
2NE1 CL teams up with Lyft, a U.S. ridesharing company, and several non-profit organizations. They will join the “#StopAsianHate” campaign in May to mark Asian Heritage Month.
Through this campaign, Lyft has partnered with National Asian Pacific Center for Aging (NAPCA), Asian Americans Community Involvement (AACI), and Self Help for the Elderly. These are non-profit organizations supporting Asian communities. So, they will provide free, discounted boarding to those threatened by hate crimes across the United States. It includes New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
2NE1 CL decided to donate under her name to the campaign and help promote it. CL had an interview with Paper Magazine as part of the campaign promotion. She said, “We all have the right to move safely and enjoy our daily lives. Asian hatred has existed since before the Pandemic. So, It’s now an urgent problem that requires all of us to step up as a global community to combat this together.”
Also, 2NE1 member CL added, “I hope that we can provide practical solutions and peace of mind to the AAPI (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) community. Hopefully, this initiative also reminds those in my community that they are seen, heard, supported for, and cared for.”
She revealed the reason for launching the campaign.
Previously, in March, 2NE1 CL urged the solidarity of Asians by saying, “We stand together” with the hashtag ‘STOP ASIAN HATE’ through their Twitter.
