Community Resources on Asian Hate Crimes / Incidents

We join the many organizations that have condemned the anti-Asian hate crimes over the last year. We offer these resource links in the hope that each of us will do our part to halt this racist violence. The links have been gathered from throughout the Asian Pacific Island American community, but this list is not exhaustive. We know many other agencies, organizations and individuals are hard at work, and we salute them.

*The inclusion of links here does not constitute endorsement by APIDC.
