Anti-AAPI Violence

In light of the recent tragedy in Atlanta, and the rising cases of violence against Asian Americans in many parts of the country since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to highlight some resources available to stopping AAPI hate. If you ever experience Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) hate, are a witness to it, or need to report it, please visit the Stop AAPI Hate, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice websites.
