Happy Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! We’re celebrating the best way we know how – by highlighting some of the amazing AAPI-owned Cannabis brands we carry & love.
Throughout the month, we hope to learn about and celebrate Asian & Pacific Islander culture, but, we must also remind ourselves of the cruel acts of hatred that have deeply impacted Asian communities. If the pandemic wasn’t difficult enough to navigate, Asian communities have had to endure covid-19 AND becoming a scapegoat for the entire pandemic.When FlowerHire asked Ophelia Chong—CEO of Asian Americans for Cannabis Education— how to support the Asian community, she responded:
- Check-in with Asian Americans. Ask them how they’re doing. And open the conversation for them to talk.
- Support Asian American and Pacific Islander non-profit organizations.
