In response to the recent robbery of AceKing BBQ on Clement St, Dear Community is raising money to help the owners recover and pay for damages to their business. This is a part of a new program called Dear Community Bites Back which was created to address the increase in attacks on Asian small businesses across San Francisco. All donations will be sent directly to the business owners to support their recovery efforts.
Dear Community is a group of accidental activists that ignited in response to anti-Asian hate violence. We are healing our community by curating safe space events that foster discourse while generating income for merchants fighting to survive. Our goal is to support Asian small business corridors that have disproportionately suffered from COVID-19 and racism. We are calling to attention the Asian American experience and we work to engage and inspire the community to join the movement.
