This month, Lettuce pays tribute to the generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America’s history. With gratitude, we celebrate the cultural diversity of our AAPI teammates, guests, vendors and communities and proudly recognize their past, current and future contributions.

Tragically, the disrespect and dangers historically faced by the AAPI community sharply increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. To combat this rise and proactively prepare for future encounters, Lettuce is sponsoring Asian Americans Advancing Justice/Chicago and their efforts to increase awareness and action by offering our teams their Bystander Intervention training program, which provides insight into the history of anti-AAPI sentiment in the United States, as well as strategies to support anyone from any community who is being harassed or assaulted.

We are honored to share in the AAPI community’s mission to end racial hatred, bias, discrimination, and harassment. For more information, please contact Lettuce’s DEI Program Manager, Monique Hunt, at mhunt@leye.com or visit https://www.advancingjustice-chicago.org/.
