April 17, Bay Area Businesses Against Asian Hate, Day of Action

Today, Saturday, April 17 is the Day of Action against Asian Hate. More than 100 Bay Area businesses have committed to a solidarity action to fight racism, such as "Donating a portion of profits from the day to a nonprofit; hosting relevant anti-racism trainings for team members; matching donations; and/or hosting a pop-up or otherwise promoting an AAPI owned-business."

For example, The Midwife and the Baker is donating 20% of its profits to AAPI charities. Plant Cultura in San Jose is donating 20% of today's sales to the Asian Law Alliance. Berkeley's The Cheeseboard Collective has set up its registers to collect donations and round up receipts at customer check out. All of today's pastry sales at Bartavelle will be donated to AAPI Women Lead.

The large majority of the companies that have taken the pledge are food and beverage businesses, including many Chowhound favorites such as Almanac Beer (organizer), Brown Sugar Kitchen, St. George Spirits, Chez Panisse, Farley's Coffee, Boichik Bagels, Mr. Dewie's Cashew Creamery, and State Bird Provisions. The full list is linked below.
