“Our shopping sprees for free are really about honoring courage, empowering self-esteem and helping people in need,” said GLAM4GOOD founder Mary Alice Stephenson, a 25-year veteran of the fashion industry.

3.) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is speaking out against the spike in hate crimes across the country in wake of the election and says his administration is currently investigating incidents.

“Let me be very clear: These acts of hate and intolerance go against everything New York stands for. We have welcomed generations of immigrants with open arms. This state will continue that proud legacy – we will not turn our backs and we will not let this heated rhetoric divide us,” said Cuomo.

Those who’ve experienced bias-motivated threats, harassment or discrimination can call   (888) 392-3644 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MondayFriday to report the incident. If you reporting a crime or are in danger, of course, call the police or 911.

 “We will stand strong united in the face of intolerance and show the world that we are one people, one family, and one New York.”

New Yorkers are also finding creative ways to transmute some of these negative and hateful acts into something positive. Some creative subway riding New Yorkers are turning swastika graffiti into messages of love and art.
