May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This month, let’s celebrate and honor the contributions of the AAPI community. Show your support through movement by booking a class or an appointment with an AAPI-owned business through the carousel in the ClassPass app homescreen or look for the “Asian-owned” self-identification on a studio’s page. You can also check out the following organizations we’ve identified as doing important work to stop anti-Asian hate and support the AAPI community:
