Tuesday, February 1 marks the beginning of a new calendar year for folks that use moon cycles as months! It is a huge cultural moment of celebration for many Asian cultures. To celebrate the year of the tiger, Asians@ is not only bringing the community together via dumpling making classes, but we are also looking to show our support for organizations focused on empowering the Asian community. While we will have more organizations to donate as part of AAPI Heritage Month, we have identified Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) to spotlight for this year's Lunar New Year. AALDEF works nationwide to protect and promote the civil rights of Asian Americans and to show our support, Pinterest is doing 2:1 donation matching for all donations made between January 26 and Feb 4
