AT&T and WarnerMedia are committing $7 million in contributions as well as a multiplatform campaign to raise awareness around escalating violence toward the U.S. Asian-American and Pacific-Islander (AAPI) community.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders have experienced more harassment, bullying, verbal assaults and violence.
Hate Has No Home Here
In support of #StopAsianHate, AT&T and WarnerMedia are committing their ongoing support to the fight against racial and social injustice.
The campaign spots include talent and executives from WarnerMedia and AT&T such as: Amara Walker (correspondent, CNN), Anne Chow (CEO, AT&T Business), Jon M. Chu (director, In the Heights, Crazy Rich Asians), Jim Lee (chief creative officer and publisher, DC), Lisa Ling (correspondent, CNN), Ludi Lin (Mortal Kombat), Olivia Cheng (Warrior), Olivia Liang and Tzi Ma (Kung Fu).
“As a company, WarnerMedia unequivocally stands with the AAPI community and all marginalized communities. We acknowledge that racism and sexism often provide the foundation for hatred, inequality, and violence—and these are systemic issues we must all fight,” said Christy Haubegger, EVP communications and chief inclusion officer, WarnerMedia, in a statement. “We are creators and thinkers, and we understand our responsibility to help foster greater understanding and awareness, in both the content we create, and through our words and actions.”
