My pal @stirfryguru started a campaign with @PosterHousenyc museum to save Chinatown and combat xenophobia. She is encouraging the public to use #ChinatownStories on Instagram to post memories and photos of your Chinatown, your favorite Chinese restaurants and food shops or stores, and how they’re faring under COVID as a way of showing moral support.
You can also share why you love Chinese food and express your appreciation for this cuisine!
You can learn more about Grace’s project and watch videos she has compiled titled Coronavirus: Chinatown Stories here. Let’s do what we can to ensure these vibrant businesses and neighborhoods survive.
