The recent surge in hate crimes committed against Asian Americans has prompted worldwide outrage and left us all wondering how we can best help the Asian American and Pacific Islander community now and every day moving forward. While celebrities like Sandra Oh and Lana Condor are using their platforms to spread awareness of the unspeakable crimes committed against the Asian American community, you can also play a part in helping end the violence and discrimination. One way you can help is buying from one of the many brands that are actively supporting AAPI causes. Before you stock up on beauty products, phone cases, clothes or houseware this month, try to find a brand that is donating profits to organizations helping the AAPI community.

To make it even easier to support our Asian American friends and family, we've rounded up 19 brands who are supporting causes that will directly help the AAPI community, spread awareness and prevent further violence. And we included some product recommendations, too!
