In March, Fashion Nova, a popular online fashion store, Megan Thee Stallion, the famous cultural icon, joined hands and launched a philanthropic initiative under the Fashion Nova Cares umbrella, known as Women on Top.
The initiative, which was run in conjunction with other Fashion Nova’s activism and awareness campaigns, aimed to empower women by giving donations, scholarships, and grants amounting to a total of $1M to women-based institutions, foundations, and organizations.
Among the beneficiaries of this initiative was ‘Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta,’ a non-profit legal advocacy organization that strives to protect the civil rights of the underserved Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, Native Hawaiians, and other immigrants in Georgia and South East.
Fashion Nova and Megan were joined by May Lee, an Asian activist and a renowned American broadcaster, to make their huge donation of $50,000 towards this non-profit organization.
Their donation followed a series of Atlanta spa shootings on March 16 that left eight people dead, six of whom were of Asian origin.
Megan consoled with the affected individuals through a post that read, “I am heartbroken by the loss of eight individuals taken from their families on March 16 in a senseless, violent attack against Asian Americans.”
And to show her support towards ending the Asian hate, Megan added, “To honor the memory of these victims, @FashionNova and I have partnered with the journalist and Asian activist @mayleeshow on a $50,000 donation to @advancing_justice_atl who work tirelessly to protect the civil and human rights of Asian Americans in Georgia and the Southeast. We stand in solidarity with all Asian Americans in saying that enough is enough. #StopAsianHate #StandWithAANHPICommunity.”
