Take Action to #StopAsianHate & Protect APPI Communities via @StopAAPIHate

Stop_AAAPI_Hate_Logo_Square.pngThe Stop AAPI Hate reporting center was launched in March of 2020 in response to the escalation in xenophobia and bigotry toward Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their goal is to track and respond to reported incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning and child bullying.

Additionally, they provide multi-lingual resources, support community-based safety measures and restorative justice efforts, and advocate for local, state, and national policies that reinforce human rights and civil rights protections. This work is done with the understanding that in order to address anti-Asian racism, we must work to end all forms of structural racism against Black, Indigenous and other communities of color.

On their Act Now page, the organization lists a number of resources  - including what to do if you are the victim of or witness to an incident of hate - and ways you can get involved to help make lasting change.

These include:

  • Encouraging those who have experienced or witnessed acts of hate toward the AAPI communities to report an incident at StopAAPIHate.org. The reporting form is available in 11 languages and these reports guide policy development and advocacy.





  • Supporting Ethnic Studies in your local school districts and educational institutions, which teaches the sources of our country’s anti-Asian racism and helps promote racial empathy and solidarity.


  • And, of course, supporting local Asian-owned businesses, which have been impacted before the first COVID-19 case was even confirmed in the U.S.

Go to StopAAPIHate.org and click "ACT NOW" for more actions, details, resources, and more.

So, if supporting AAPI communities and ending white supremacy is important to you, be sure to tell everyone you know about Taking Action to #StopAsianHate and Protecting APPI Communities so that others in your network can spread the word too.
