OPEN TO ALL STATEMENT

We Must Stop Asian Hate; Companies Can Have Meaningful Impact

Open to All® is a campaign to transform America towards a shared vision that everyone should be welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, immigration status, religion or disability.

Open to All® calls for an end to systemic racism and hate violence.

This moment requires AAPI voices to lead, and for the rest of us to truly listen and learn what real allyship requires. The time has long passed when silence is acceptable, when we watch from the safety of the sidelines — we must take action — not as a token towards inclusivity, but as a core and integral part of what it means to be a business in America. A business that looks towards a thriving and welcoming future where all are welcome. Where we are all valued. Where everyone can contribute. Where we are all safe.

  • Make a public statement in support of AAPI customers, employees, colleagues and the AAPI community from company leadership and share it on social media. We include examples below.
  • Create a space for internal dialogue and provide resources, information and support to employees.
  • Make a commitment and continue to invest in diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, including: hiring, retention & advancement policies, and anti-racist and bias training. Asian Americans Advancing Justice offers trainings.
  • Engage with and listen to AAPI-led organizations nationally and locally to combat racism. Follow these organizations on social media and share their information and resources.
  • Explore ways to lift up, partner, and support businesses and brands owned by AAPI people.
  • Lend a corporate or small business voice in support of policy changes at the local, state, and federal level that promotes fairness and equity, and that prohibit all forms of discrimination.

At a time of deep divisions, we’re joining together from all walks of life and work to build a thriving and inclusive nation where all are welcome.
