As the rise in violence continues against Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI), Casion Jewelry in Bothell and the Schack Art Center in Everett are launching a fundraising campaign to stop the attacks against AAPI. The “Cranes for Peace” campaign will start in May which is Asian American Heritage Month.

The fundraising campaign offers Washi Origami Crane earrings in which a portion of each purchase will be donated to the Stop AAPI Hate Center. This organization is a collaboration by the Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action, and the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University. The center tracks and reports incidents of hate, violence, harassment, and discrimination as well as provides translation services, advocacy, and more.

“The Asian tradition of 1,000 cranes represents granting a special wish, happiness, long life, and often used to symbolize peace,” Casion Jewelry founder and designer Fay Lim said. “It would be amazing to reach this magical number and by using art for peace, this partnership with the Schack Art Center hopefully will inspire people to support ending the rising violence.”

“Art is universal and to partner in support of the cause to stop violence against AAPI is very important work to our organization,” said Schack Art Center Executive Director, Judy Tuohy.  “The Schack Art Center believes in equity for all and is demonstrated in our work to celebrate and promote the arts for the enhancement of community life for all of our community and we intentionally embrace and uplift all people.”

The origami crane earrings are available at the Schack Art Center’s Gallery Store at 2921 Hoyt Ave., Everett, WA.
