Anti-Asian Racism Resources
Below you’ll find resources that have been gathered by various activists and groups to help individuals educate others, take action, donate, and more.
Anti-Asian racism and violent attacks on the Asian elderly have only increased in recent months. Since COVID-19 became news in the United States, hate speech and violence against the AAPI community have run rampant. In February 2021, attacks, particularly on elderly Asian Americans, have spiked. Unfortunately, many of these incidents are not being reported and are invisible to major media outlets. We hope to change this by offering the following resources. Please join in taking action whether it’s by educating yourself and others around you or donating to non-profit organizations
