Resources Against Anti-Asian Hate
Act to Change is a national non-profit organization dedicated to ending bullying among AAPI youth so they can thrive in communities that support their identities. ATC was first launched in 2015 as an anti-bullying campaign under President Obama’s White House Initiative on AAPIs. In 2018 it relaunched as a non-profit organization and has since led an annual AAPI Day Against Bullying+Hate and launched a #CovidConvos dialogue series.
Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is a commemoration of the culture, traditions and history of Asian American and Pacific Islander people in the United States. During Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, communities commemorate the achievements and contributions of people who are Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) with community festivals, government-sponsored activities and educational activities for students.
Asian Americans Advancing Justice: Trainings to Address Anti-Asian/American HarassmentAnti-Asian and Asian American and xenophobic harassment is on the rise across the U.S. Unfortunately, anti-Asian and Asian American racism and xenophobia are not a new phenomenon. One way we can take action to protect our communities is to learn ways to intervene effectively as a bystander without compromising safety.
Anti-Asian sentiment and hate crimes continue to be directed at the Asian Pacific American community. The purpose of this guide is to provide a resource that contributes to a better understanding of anti-Asian violence and the need to respond. An understanding of the causes of hate crimes together with a means for responding to these incidents is important because hate crimes have the potential for causing damage to entire communities by making them feel fearful and suspicious of other groups and individuals.
Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and girls are prime targets of hate and discrimination against the AAPI community. Hate incidents against AAPIs rose sharply over the past year, with over 6,600 reports collected by Stop AAPI Hate (SAH) between March 2020 and March 2021. In particular, AAPI women and girls report these hate incidents two times as often as AAPI men. We further disaggregate AAPI women’s experiences by different subgroups using data from SAH and the NAPAWF national survey.
This groundbreaking survey spotlights Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) women’s experiences with discrimination, harassment, and violence amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and one year since the mass shootings in Atlanta that claimed the lives of six Asian American women.
Hate incidents and crimes often go unreported. StandAgainstHatred.Org is asking people to report incidences such as harassment and violence so that more complete stories can be told about the racism and xenophobia directed toward Asian Americans.
Our communities stand united against racism. Hate against Asian American Pacific Islander communities has risen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can stop it.

How are parents, family members, teachers and other caregivers supporting children at a time when physical safety is all but impossible to guarantee? How can the rest of us meaningfully support our Asian American family members, friends and neighbors?
