04 / COMMUNITY
The ox represents strength, diligence, and perseverance in spite of challenges. Through the event, Hennessy encouraged viewers to join in supporting hard working small businesses that demonstrate these same admirable tenets. In this spirit of resilience, Hennessy also pledged an additional $250,000 to support small businesses impacted by the pandemic as part of the brand’s Unfinished Business initiative. With over $5 million in funds already distributed, the long-term program was developed in partnership with the Asian American Business Development Center, among other community organizations, to provide financial and educational resources to Asian, Black, and Latinx-owned small businesses.
Hennessy has a longstanding relationship with Asian and Asian American communities and remains committed to supporting them. To combat recent hate crimes and violence, Hennessy is proud to work with Tammy Cho from #HateIsAVirus and use the event as a platform to further amplify and address this crisis. The Lunar New Year is a time when we reflect on the present and look towards a brighter future without hate and racism.
