Hasbro issues statement in solidarity with the Asian community

Recent events have raised the sadly familiar specter of racism and discrimination, and we’re reminded of how much more there is out there to deal with, and how much we still need to grow as a society.
These are difficult times, and the handling of such concerns as the COVID-19 pandemic has complicated the already-fraught matter of prevalent discrimination.
Hasbro has most recently taken to social media to respond to these social issues. Via the Transformers Facebook page, Hasbro issued this statement:
“We stand together with the Asian community and condemn racism in all forms. We are committed to change through action, including listening, learning, contributing to Stop AAPI Hate and partnering with Design for Change. #StopAsianHate  “

About STOP AAPI HATE:
Stop AAPI Hate is a reporting center for anti-Asian hate incidents aggravated by COVID-19. We document these incidents and support advocacy for the Asian community. Founded by A3PCON, Chinese For Affirmative Action, & SFSU Asian American Studies Dept.
 
About DESIGN FOR CHANGE:

DESIGN for CHANGE is the largest global movement driven by children who believe that ‘every child can’
Design for Change reaches 65+ countries, over 300,000 schools and 25 million children with a belief that ‘I CAN’. The Design for Change Challenge asks students to do four very simple things : Feel | Imagine | Do | Share
Children are dreaming up brilliant ideas all over the world, from challenging age-old superstitions in rural communities, to earning their own money to finance school computers, to solving the problem of heavy school bags, etc. Children are proving that they have what it takes to be able to ‘design’ a future that they imagine and feel strongly about.
The Design for Change community believes that to see the change one needs to ‘Be the Change’. We encourage teachers and parents to celebrate the fact that change is possible and that they can lead this movement towards change!
