Yelp has partnered with influential non-profit Gold House to help support Asian-owned businesses.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- As anti-Asian attacks have risen and Asian-owned businesses have suffered, companies are stepping up to support the AAPI community.

Yelp has partnered with Gold House, the influential nonprofit comprised of Asian-American leaders in tech, business, entertainment and the arts. Gold House's Gold Open initiative helped ensure the success of films involving Asian-Americans such as Crazy Rich Asians.

A new Yelp feature now allows Asian-owned businesses to self-identify and be tagged as such. This would allow Yelp users who want to actively support those businesses to find them more easily.
