Communities of color are being disproportionately impacted by #COVID19. That’s why AEO Inc. is signing Open to All’s #COVID19 Corporate Response Letter, pledging to combat racial disparities and discrimination as a result of the pandemic. The letter encourages all businesses and corporations who sign to work to combat racial disparities and denounce anti- Asian American and Pacific Islander racism in their communities.
Open to All is a nondiscrimination campaign that believes everyone should be welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. AEO is one of 23 businesses from companies from across the country who have signed the letter, which was written in response to data that showed COVID-19 is resulting in a sharp rise of Anti-Asian racism and is killing far greater numbers of Black, Latinx/Hispanic people, as well as Pacific Islanders.
AEO is proud to support Open to All’s campaign and will ensure our stores and offices continue to be a place of welcome for all.
