Stop AAPI Hate is a coalition addressing the rise of anti-Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) racism in the United States. Co-founded in March 2020 by Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON), and the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University, the coalition has become the leading aggregator of hate incidents targeting AAPI communities. Taking a holistic approach to social change and violence prevention, Stop AAPI Hate also offers multilingual resources for affected communities; provides technical assistance from rapid response to preventative measures; supports community-based safety measures and restorative justice efforts; and advocates for local, state, and national policies that reinforce human rights and civil rights protections for all.
In her remarks, CAA Co-Executive Director and Stop AAPI Hate Co-Founder Cynthia Choi will provide a comprehensive overview of the growing problem of anti-AAPI racism. Citing our coalition’s latest figures on U.S. hate incidents, Choi will delve into the added challenges facing marginalized groups, including women and girls and first-generation immigrants who must contend with the trio of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. Participants can also expect a balanced discussion on the challenge of under-reporting and the role of public officials in serving and representing immigrant communities where distrust in law enforcement and other government agencies prevents victims and survivors from seeking support.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Evaluate key findings about COVID-19 related racism including who is disproportionately affected.
- Explain the intersection of race and gender, and how women and girls are affected by anti-Asian racism.
- Identify key barriers for victims and survivors for seeking assistance.
- Offer key recommendations for addressing community safety and violence at the state and local level.
