In Solidarity with Asian-American & Pacific Islander Communities

Text

We are heartbroken and horrified by the mass shooting in Atlanta and the recent surge in violence against Asian/Asian American/API communities across the country. We condemn these acts of violence and stand in solidarity with AAPI communities. 

Below is a list of resources and AAPI organizations to learn more about or support. We will continue to add to this list. 

Stop AAPI Hate

In response to the alarming escalation in xenophobia and bigotry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020. The center tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

Functioning remotely, the organization today is the result of passionate volunteers with a shared purpose.
